What you should know:
Immerse kids in the wild world of Africa, where lemurs and leopards leap from the screen. This app is a beautiful blend of math, science, and reading.
Each screen engages all the senses, while exercising both basic and advanced math and reading skills. Word problems appear against a breathtaking African backdrop. Students correctly read, interpret and answer math problems and then move on. Got a budding naturalist interested in flocks of flamingos or mobs of meerkats? She can tap the TV icon and watch a short film about whatever exotic animal tickled her fancy. Photographs are crisp and clear—there's nothing cartoon-like about these beasts! Short movies are well done and feature animals from zoos around the world, some with expert narration. Cool multimedia features and a focus on multiple skill sets makes this app stand out from the rest.
The app is easy enough for kids to use on their own and it can be endlessly engrossing. Keep an eye out, though: kids can skip the math problems altogether and just troll through videos and pictures.
