A delightful, wordless picture book is found in this sweet and simple app for young children. Parents and caregivers can explore this title with their youngsters, telling stories as they explore each setting. The app includes matching games and other memory activities, alongside a series of scenes with simple tasks to complete, like planting a seed or picking apples. With over 20 games and scenes to explore, this app is chock full of activities to engage and educate little ones.
The app uses a unique side-scrolling navigation mechanic to let children move through the day’s tasks. You start in the morning (collecting eggs) and swipe from right to left to move to a later point in the day. Each task is easy to spot; and when you’ve done all your work, there’s a pleasant good-night scene and the farm goes to sleep
TWA Notes – We love the apps use of a unique side-scrolling navigation mechanic to let children move through morning and swipe from right to left to move to a later point in the day, and when all of your chores for the day are done, there’s a beautiful good-night scene and the entire farm goes to sleep. This feature was pointed out by Warren Buckleitner at the Dust or Magic Once Upon an App Workshop at the Highlights Foundation and it is one of 10 apps with a mention at the Bogona Ragazzi Digital Awards deemed noteworthy by the jurors for their innovative contributions to the field.
