What do you get when you cross a monkey with a porcupine? Why, a monkupine, of course! What about a leopard with a armadillo? Well, that would be a leopadillo, naturally!
The third brilliant app in the hugely popular Flip Flap series, Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Jungle features eleven brand new animals and poems, from the UK’s best-selling illustrator. With 121 possible combinations, silly names and animal noises to make you giggle, this hilarious rhyming app is perfect for pre-schoolers.
Swipe any part of the screen to create new animals and hear the poem read aloud, with original sound effects, jungle music, and text highlighting.
With original artwork by Axel Scheffler, illustrator of the picture book modern classics The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom, fantastic music, and lively child narration.
“Want to see what a parakeet might look like with four furry legs? Swipe the bottom of the brightly colored, inviting illustration or its corresponding text until you find just the legs you’re looking for…
The best thing about this app is the chance to be creative and silly. Make a leopilla (leopard/gorilla)! A touceleon (toucan/chameleon)! A fradillo (frog/armadillo)! The world is your oyster — and if this app included an oyster, you could turn it into an oystupine. While you’re at it, you might just learn some animal facts and practice your reading, too.”
“…we love the illustrations, but we also love the poems that go with them too: you’ll have lots of fun reading these with your children, although you can also leave the voice narration to do its work, with words highlighted as they’re read out. It’s a hoot!”
“This is another excellent bite-sized starter app that is also a good language enrichment experience. The fonts and text highlighting also make it a noteworthy reading experience.”
