The little dragon | Educational iPad storybook app for kids
The well-known Mildenberger Verlag, publisher for schoolbooks, teaching and learning materials for primary schools in Germany, has published a very fiery kids app.
At least the brothers of the little dragon are enthused about the fire-spitting competitions – whereas the little dragon prefers to read books.
This app is great for kids who are learning how to read. The story of the little dragon has some really appealing illustrations and playful animations, which work really well on the iPad and kids will learn to read easily, in a fun and encouraging way.
The little dragon loves to read and is proud about it, even if the other dragons make fun of him and rather spend their time comparing their strengths.
Reading is not meant for young dragons! But as one day, one of the nasty dragons is suffering from a painful toothache, he can only be helped by the knowledge of the little dragon and his book…
This great educational storybook, has a read-out mode and a special learning mode which supports kids with their reading. If you use the German mode, you will also learn the syllables technique which is a fantastic way to learn and practise reading (this is useful, in case you’re also raising your child multilingual).
Each word gets spoken out loud and separately, so that kids will learn the pronunciation of each word and can also memorise the words easier.
The multilingual possibilities of this app do not only help primary school pupils but also support older kids, who are learning a foreign language.
You always get one text page and the next one with full illustrations and colourful pictures, which also have fun and entertaining interactions with sound elements.
One other fantastic feature is the memory learning game and a quiz with questions about the reading knowledge. Both are very educational and nicely designed.
The memory game works a little bit different to the usual memory game, where you need to find a matching pair. In this game, you have a picture and the matching word which counts as a matching pair, this also encourages kids to read.
As you can see this whole app is very educational and also fun for kids. The little dragon is a cute story, which will also help kids to want to read. Kids have a lot of fun with the quiz and memory game, where they can test their attention and knowledge.
