It's tough to resist the absolutely beautiful artwork put forward by Crazy Weather, a new app for the iPhone and iPad that teaches kids about the impacts of global climate change on weather. The interactive app is a fairytale that tackles the problems of our warming planet, and all in an adorable rhyme. While the text is great, its the images that captivate.

The story is of a child who visits a neighborhood park only to encounter some, you guessed it, crazy weather. The child observes what's going on and comes to a conclusion about our planet's plight. The app offers users a way to interact with the story, discovering secrets on each page, and a parent can even read the story out lout to record it so a child can listen to the story as told in their mom or dad's voice.

The app is basically a modern-day version of a pop-up children's book, providing a story, beautiful art, and interaction with the reader. Plus, the hopeful message is an important one for kids. Crazy Weather is $2.99 and seems like a great addition for kids who already love to play on their parent's iPhone!
