Learning more about birds may not be the topic that makes your kids wild with enthusiasm. But that’s just because they didn’t try this application yet! OceanHouse Media proves that the Cat in the Hat concept translate very well as an app to teach young ones more about birds. If your children like Dr. Suess already, then they’ll love this application. Let the Cat in the Hat take you away on his Fine-Feather, All Weather Flying Machine to explore the world of birds!
An educational application doesn’t get more interactive than this. Words light up while the Cat in the Hat reads them to you. Is he going to fast? Is there a word you don’t understand? With a simple tap of your finger an explanation of the words pops up. You can also move the objects on the page or tap on them to know their name. The fun facts about birds and witty rhymes add a very easygoing and amusing character to the app. You can also try to read the story out loud and record your voice while doing so. Whether you learn about the long neck of the ostrich, the story of the eagle or the eggs of the Emperor penguin, you’ll keep on turning the virtual pages with a smile on your face. Our guess is that not only the children will like the app. Parents who grew up with Dr. Suess will appreciate the storyline and style as well.
What we really appreciate in this app is that it serves multiple educational purposes for kids with different backgrounds; the application is helpful for native and non-native English speakers. For English native-speakers, the app will help them improve their level of spelling. If your child doesn’t have English as mother-tongue, this application will help them with pronunciation and knowledge about English vocabulary. The core focus of Fine Feathered Friends remains enriching children’s knowledge on birds, but the developers really succeeded in training multiple skills that are so important for kids.
This interactive comic book-application is visually very strong and entertaining. Fine Feathered Friends will be a very fun and useful tool for children practicing their English reading and spelling skills for ages between 5 and 10.
The Cat in the Hat also takes your kid on a journey to the wonderful world of dinosaurs, marine life and pets! You can see for yourself and test a few ‘lite’ apps of The Cat in the Hat and the Berenstain Bears in Apple’s App Store.
