Have you heard about the world-famous Jack Russell Terrier, Just Jesse the Jack? He has over 30 million views on YouTube so far, so you might be familiar already. Jesse is a purebred, tri-color Jack Russell Terrier who loves to make people laugh and bring smiles to their faces. He is a happy and healthy little guy who has appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman, Good Morning America, Nickelodeon, Animal Planet, The Rachael Ray Show, CBS, NBC, ABC, Disney, VH1, and the list goes on! Some of Jesse’s favorite tricks include walking handstand, skateboarding, riding a rocking horse, and useful tricks like putting the dishes in the dishwasher. He loves to pop balloons, play hide-and-seek, and of course teach kids their ABCs!
He’s super cute and smart, and with the help of his human friends, Jesse has now launched an interactive children’s app and an iBook to help children learn in a fun, creative way.
Jesse the Jack’s ABC Zoo is an iBook and app that teaches children the alphabet. Using eye-catching animation and well-known Jack Russell Terrier, Jesse the Jack, ABC Zoo illustrates the full alphabet and pairs letters with animals and colors to assist with association and learning. The storyline involves Jesse’s real world and the world of learning he creates when he falls asleep.
Available on iOS (and coming to Android early 2015), the app features animation, narration and video to help children ages 2-6 learn the alphabet. With two modes, story and play, children are able to choose their own adventure. Story mode involves various animations and illustrations, and has real animal sounds to allow children to learn and identify the correct sound of the animal. Playmodes gives children a “fill in the shape” game where they have to match the animal and letter to its corresponding silhouette. The app costs $1.99.
Correct answers are rewarded with “Jesse treats.” For every two Jesse treats earned, children will be directed to a page of 12 different Jesse tricks – from Jesse driving an ATV to Jesse riding a scooter. That sounds like a great incentive doesn’t it? The sharp animations and illustrations also serve to hold children’s attention, and the upbeat music produced by street performer Dub FX and his wife, Flower Fairy, can be found in both story and play modes.
The iBook also features touch narration that allows children to replay any words or sentences they need help with reading or pronouncing. Narration is both soothing and positive and can be turned on and off. The iBook costs $.99.

I can’t believe I’ve never heard of Jesse the Jack! But regardless, I know my kids would love this app! Especially since they’ve been begging for a dog lately. This may actually give them the upper hand too.
