The Expanding Picture Book

The Expanding Picture Book consists of 4 beautifully illustrated interactive picture books which continually expand to reveal a picture within a picture. The illustrations are bright, quirky and full of detail. The zooming effect of the pictures will keep the viewer guessing until the very end.

  Each picture book is set to relaxing classical music and each book has a series of interactive questions which appear as the images zoom out. These questions require the user to make basic mathematical calculations as well as find and identify particular items on the screen. Both the questions and the music are optional and can be turned off in the settings page.

  The app has a lot of educational uses. Each picture book is full of interesting talking points making them ideal to use as discussion prompts with children who have speech and language difficulties or for those trying to learn a second language.

  We’ve grouped all of the images used in each level of the app into 4 pdfs which you can download here. These are very useful for story sequencing activities where children try to put the images into the correct order after viewing the app. They could also be used as part of a teambuilding exercise where the team decides on the correct order by listening to a description of each picture.

I am new to EYFS and all the planning documents on this site have been really helpful, especially all the templates.

All of the story resources have been put to good use in our library corner, especially during World Book Day. Keep up the good work!

As an NQT this site has been a lifesaver. The resources have saved me loads of time and the forest school activities have been particularly useful. Thanks!

The bright colours and clear images are brilliant for my SEN pupils. For a lot of the children routines are really important, so the visual timetable in particular has been a big hit.

I really enjoy putting together eye-catching displays in my classroom and ELHQ always has lots of colourful and engaging material to choose from.
