Byrne Publishing LLC
Bessy’s Bed

Treat your kid to a silly barnyard-bedtime story! This App includes:

(1) a 17-page Bessy’s Bed storybook;
(2) a 15-level jigsaw puzzle game;
(3) a 6-level matching game; and
(4) a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the illustrator’s artistic process.

To watch a video about this app, please visit us online at Kids will love reading, playing, and matching in the Bessy’s Bed app!

Kids follow Bessy the cow as she searches for a more comfortable bed. She ends up in some pretty silly situations in this “the grass is always greener” tale. Every page of the story features beautiful illustrations that mesmerize little ones. They'll love listening to the story as it is read aloud for them by a super cute kid narrator. The iPad version also helps kids learn to read by presenting each word on the screen as it is read.

The 15-level puzzle game starts with a series of 6-piece puzzles, then moves on to 9-piece puzzles, and finally to 12-piece puzzles. The puzzles have been extensively tested with small children to ensure the right balance of challenge and success. The pieces are calibrated to snap into place when they are positioned “close-enough” to where they should go. This is a great way to introduce kids to puzzles and help them get the concept.

Kids will love matching pairs of pictures from the storybooks. The 6-level matching game starts off with 6 memorable images to match, then moves on to 8, 10, 12, 18, and 24 images to match. This matching game is a great and fun way to develop a child’s memory skills.

Kids (and adults) will get a kick out of seeing the clay model the illustrator used to paint Bessy. Tap Sheila Bailey’s name on the launch page to learn more about the artist.
