great kids storybook app
Perhaps you’re already familiar with the tale of King Laurin, or maybe you have travelled to South Tirol and have heard about the myth of the King and his rose garden.
If not, you now have the opportunity to share the wonderful myth of King Laurin and his rose garden with your kids, in a same-named storybook app for kids.
Experience one of the most famous legend of the Dolomite Mountains for the first time on iPhone & iPad!
A king, a beautiful princess, hard-working dwarfs and fearless knights: These are all part of the legend of the Dolomite Mountains. The legend is being told on 17 illustrated and interactive pages, of a very jealous King, who had been overlooked in a tournament, where the future consort of the princess had been fought out.
With the help of his magic hood and his magic belt, he was able to play a trick on his competitor, until his rose garden however, became his fate!
Even though he was well disguised, his swaying roses betrayed him and showed the knights where he was staying. He then got arrested because he abducted the princess shortly after the tournament.
Enraged of his roses, he decided to put a spell on them; that no-one should ever admire them again, neither by day nor by night!
How mean of him! But unfortunate for him, the little troublemaker forgot about the twilight. Therefore, exactely that spot by the Dolomite mountains, was shining bright red by dusk and dawn.
The myth therefore also explains the phenomenons of nature in a very imaginative way for a change, which is nice and different to the usual Grimm-like fairy-tales which you see a lot of in most storybook apps.
This app is very good value for money. A very professional narrator, goregeous graphics and great interactions await you. Kids are also able to collect diamonds on some pages of this storybook or even fight out a knight’s battle.
Great sounds and musical effects make sure, that the atmosphere of the story comes across really nicely!
Kids can also find out more information about this myth, if they take a look at the extras: at Laurin’s world.
All the characters are presented and explained in detail and also other literary writings such as the Nibelungen and Harry Potter
(keyword: magic hood) are mentioned.
These extras need to be read out to the kids, unless they can read by themselves, as those have no audio response.
