As I’m sure you’ll all know, January 20th is Penguin Awareness Day – and what better way could there be to mark the occasion than with our non-fiction story app, Rounds: Parker Penguin?
This highly-acclaimed, award-winning app is the second in our fantastic Rounds series, and just like the first one, Rounds: Franklin Frog, it combines a charming and accessible story with a bold, graphic illustrative style (using only circles and components of circles), some hugely innovative interactivity, animation, voicework and original music throughout, and LOTS of fun facts – perfect for both home and the classroom.
You can help Parker do all the things that penguins do best – waddle, slide, swim, hunt, march, dance, protect their eggs, help a chick to hatch and shed its down – and then start all over again with Percy! Along the way, there’s lots to find out about penguins and the Antarctic – did you know that penguins can dive over 500 metres underwater? Or that they can hold their breath for 20 minutes when they are hunting?
You can watch a preview of the app at the top of this post – and here’s a free, downloadable penguin fact sheet to accompany the app:
Happy Penguin Awareness Day – we hope you have fun with Parker!
