Today as I was browsing through Apps Gone Free I came across this classic from Dr. Seuss titled ‘Yertle the Turtle‘ and thought to share it with you. This is an app that is now free and only for a limited period of time. Along with the amazing storytelling, the app offers a number of interactive features to engage your kid in literacy-based activities.
Kids have the option to read the story themselves or listen to it narrated, learn new vocabulary by simply tapping terms and images, uncover hidden perks and fun activities from each page, and many more. The app also empowers parents with integrated tools to help them supervise their kids interaction with the app. They can, for instance, track their kids’ reading time, how many pages they have read, and many more.
“Join Yertle the Turtle, king of the pond, in this interactive app as he commands the other turtles to stack themselves beneath him so that he can see further and expand his kingdom. Explore pictures, learn new vocabulary, and personalize the story with your own narration. Find out what happens when Mack, the turtle at the bottom of the pile, decides that he has had enough!”.
