Petting Zoo is a wonderful cartoon book app, from acclaimed author and illustrator Christoph Niemann. We bought it a while ago and still play with it and still love it. It is available on both Apple devices and Android devices.
The app has 21 interactive animals, each will react to your touch in a different way: the elephant in the bathtub will shower himself if you guide his trunk to point at different body parts, the lion’s mane will change its shape following your finger’s move, kids will be delighted that they can freely touch the alligator’s teeth and make them go away, …
The illustrations are cute and simple. The animations are just brilliant and full of surprises. Make sure have the setting set at showing the transitions. I love those smart transitions between pages. You can do this by tapping the Setting icon at the top left corner of each page, then selecting Show Transitions.

I did not see the chapter page when we read it for the first time. That is a page showing all the animals in the app with light animations, and it is a page you don’t want to miss. To go to the chapter page, you can tap on the Setting icon, then tap on Go to Chapter. This is also a good start page for any re-visits.
There is no talking or written words in the app, so kids of any age, of any country, can enjoy this creative app. Here is a quick peek of the app.
Petting Zoo is available for iPhone, iPod and iPAD. It is also available for Android on Amazon and Google Play. It is usually $1.99 to 2.99.
