Tokyo, Japan – LaLafish today is pleased to introduce My Father’s Clothes 1.0 for iOS, their Book for kids with lots of interactivity on every page and a playful story about the relationship of God the Father and all living things on Earth. The colorfully illustrated parable is the story of three fishes, one of whom is seen one day wearing his Father’s clothes, a golden vestment. The two other fishes ask why, and the resulting answers and more questions take the reader on a journey through the wonders of the Natural World. My Father’s Clothes can be read aloud using the built-in professional narration, or the voiceover can be turned off for live reading. The inspiring ebook will be understood by kids as a wondrous story, and it will be at the discretion of the parent or teacher reading the book to ask the question, “Who is the Father in this story?”
My Father’s Clothes is a meticulously designed ebook from a company that specializes in graphics and animation. Here, they have made an ambitious choice, to rarely repeat any of the interactive animation. For example, after hearing the page aloud, the child is free to touch any of the three fishes or their surroundings. Touching each fish makes a characteristic sound, and each fish can be moved with a touch and drag gesture. To the child’s delight, they will find that on each page the fish move differently. On one page, they seem to be held in place by a rubber band, on another page they float like a balloon, and on another page they bounce like a ball.
Every storybook page also includes interactivity with the environment, such as, bubbles in the ocean, shells, fish, whales, buttons, hearts, flowers, and piano keys. On every page, the reader will find many details to discover, many ways to interact with objects and characters, and occasional hidden surprises.
This is a book about beauty, love, and the miracle of Creation, and the artist and writer have harmonized the pictures and words with these themes of the book. It is rare in books for children to encounter what psychologist Romain Roland termed, that “oceanic feeling,” the source of all religion. This ebook provides a child’s first look into the relationship between their world, Creation, and the Creator. In short, enjoying My Father’s Clothes is a holistic experience, moving for heart, mind, and soul.
