  • MIGHTY LEAGUE APP REVIEW

    The description states that this is for ages 5-11, but I will say my kids younger than five really enjoyed it as well. There are tons of special features in this app, such as changing the superhero, interacting with the hedgehog, different types of narration, tons of interactive sounds and animations, and there’s even something you can download to go along with it that aligns with Common Core!

    I think this is a really fun, cool app. Adults will realize fairly quickly the JMan has Asperger’s Syndrome. Younger kids won’t catch on right away but they’ll get the point – he is different, and that’s okay. I like the discussions that can come from something like this. I do highly recommend this for all parents, no matter the age of your children, really.

  • LITFUSE PUBLICITY: THE MIGHTY LEAGUE STORYBOOK APP REVIEW #GROW4CHRIST

    The interactive nature of the app is fun for children and since it’s a 10 year old boy and his pet hedgehog most children can relate to that – although my children are homeschooled they still are quite aware of bullying and what it is.

  • BOOK REVIEW: THE MIGHTY LEAGUE VOLUME 1, THE TERRIBLE TAUNTING

    I absolutely loved this storybook. It’s visually beautiful and no matter the age, readers can find fun things to click on. For the child who can read, the secret notebook is a treasure trove of information for all to understand and raise awareness about what it’s like to be an Aspie’s kid. I think this would work for all levels of the autism spectrum to help classmates understand their friends who are on the spectrum.

  • FUN & INTERACTIVE!

    We found the app pretty easy to use, though some of the hidden items weren’t as intuitive as we thought they should be. My son said he found some elements a little boring–this is probably directly connected to my son being older than the intended audience…

  • THE ANTI-BULLYING MESSAGE IN THIS BOOK IS CONVEYED IN A WAY CHILDREN CAN REALLY UNDERSTAND AND RELATE TO.

    can not tell you how much my daughter enjoyed this app! We have tried customizable ebooks before, but none have been as much fun as The Mighty League, Vol. 1: The Terrible Taunting Storybook.

    The anti-bullying message in this book is conveyed in a way children can really understand and relate to. I know that it sparked a conversation in our home that was very meaningful, and that I feel really resonated with my kids.

  • THE MIGHTY LEAGUE APP

    This app is a great use of modern technology. The interactive book is fun for kids to read, finding hidden objects, etc. Parents with children on the autism spectrum would find this app enjoyable and instructive for their kids.

  • APP REVIEW: THE MIGHTY LEAGUE, VOL. 1: THE TERRIBLE TAUNTING STORYBOOK APP

    This is a cute little app with a powerful story about standing against bullying, and being different. While the recommended age range is 5 – 11, I think this is definitely more geared toward 5 – 7. It’s interactive experience that takes you through a morning in the life of Jman. One really cool feature about this is the ability to change the main character’s name. My 7 year old boy enjoyed the story and hopefully learned a few new things from it.

  • “TERRIBLE TAUNTING” – AN APP FOR CHILDREN AGES 5 – 11! BRINGS ATTENTION TO BULLYING!

    As a retired teacher, who has taught many children with Asperger’s Syndrome (autism), I realize how much they suffer with the teasing. This is such a common problem, but one which is so difficult to deal with. “The Terrible Taunting” does a superior job in having colorful pictures, complete reading aloud (the child doesn’t have to read it by himself), having a task on each page to do, keeping the child engrossed in the story.

  • THE MIGHTY LEAGUE STORY BOOK{APP REVIEW & GIVEAWAY INFORMATION}

    I think this is a valuable resource for parents who have children with Asperger’s Syndrome. Valuable to them and their children! It is so interactive and getting bored with it is something that didn’t happen here!

  • A GREAT INTERACTIVE APP FOR KIDS

    In today’s world, children are no stranger to technology. The Mighty League, Terrible Taunting Storybook App uses technology to educate and promote awareness of differences for children in a fun and an interactive way.This a great app for kids that offer music, customizable characters, narration, and the ability to record their own narration. I shared the app with my nine-year old niece and she enjoyed reading the book. On our first read through, we both missed the secret notebook, which contains additional information about Asperger’s syndrome and bullying, and some of the interactive elements. So this is an app that a child could use multiple times and see something new each time. It has more than 70 different interactive elements.

  • THE MIGHTY LEAGUE VOL 1 – THE TERRIBLE TAUNTING

    What a fun interactive app book. My kids have enjoyed reading this storybook app. My kids love the superhero JMan and his hedgehog as a sidekick.

    A wonderful way to teach your kids about bullying and Aspergers Syndrome. Their is a lot of layers to discovered in this storybook app. This was great for my daughter who struggles with reading as the narration reads and highlights the words in the story.

    Having a daughter on the spectrum made it a real treat for her. I can’t wait for the next story!

    Litfuse Publicity Group has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book. In no way was I asked to give a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

  • EDUCATIONAL, ENGAGING, AND EASY TO USE

    As a mom of a child on the autism spectrum, I feel this kind of tool is vital to increasing awareness and removing the stigma from the subject of special needs. This book brings attention to the topic of bullying, something that seems to be unavoidable in today’s society for all age groups. My daughters enjoyed customizing this app (of course they chose to make the main character a girl) and finding the hidden objects throughout the book. They went back and tried all the options so they have read the book several times now. Installation and download on the Kindle was simple and quick. My daughters want to know if there will be more books in this series because they enjoyed the story and the format.

  • THE MIGHTY LEAGUE VOL. 1; THE TERRIBLE TAUNTING STORYBOOK APP BOOK REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

    I feel that it is very important that we as parents and educators use every resource available to us to try to put an end to bullying. we are more aware today that children can learn at an early age, how mean and hurtful it is to bully.

  • MIGHTY POWERFUL

    I have a four year old and five year old, both who have experienced bullying in one form or another. This App was perfect for their age group. The program actually reminds me a lot of one that my Kindergartener uses at school and home so he was able to instantly navigate through it with no help. My four year old needed help getting started but then she was good to go!

    Since they are both learning to read, I really like these follow along stories that highlight the words that are being read to them aloud so they can track and learn.

    What’s unique about this App is it’s fully customizable. Everything is more relatable to kids when it applies directly to them and/or is something they designed themselves.

    The Might League App is a great tool for young kids who have or will face bullying in school!
