In case you missed it, yesterday we released our latest app: Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Jungle is available on the App Store now!
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!
This is the third app in the series, with incredible new artwork from Axel, new funny poems, 121 new silly animal hybrid names and creatures, and the same wonderfully intuitive interface – you can swipe anywhere on the screen to create new combinations! It is INCREDIBLY satisfying (and addictive) – you’ll be swiping for hours – and all for just 99¢/ 79p! Here are just a few of the brilliant combinations you can make:
This is GREAT for keeping young children occupied over the summer, I think (very good for car journeys…) – and it’s also a fantastic app for building reading ability. The second app in the series, Flip Flap Safari, recently won the inaugural UKLA Digital Book Award (the only digital book award in the UK voted for by teachers), and in their commendation for the app, the UKLA wrote that Flip Flap Safari is “beautifully produced and appealing and can easily be incorporated into guided reading sessions. Children have great fun creating their own animals and playing guessing games and the ‘read to me’ feature is a useful tool enabling all children to enjoy the book. Teacher judges appreciated the rich vocabulary and thought the poetry examples inspired further poetry activities in class.”
Here’s Flip Flap Jungle on the App Store for 99¢/ 79p.
And here’s what to look for on the Store:
And if you like the app, you’ll love the book! We’ve published a print edition of Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Jungle too, in a wonderful split-page, spiral-bound board-book format – you can find out more here.
