I love Nosy Crow’s apps. Today they set one of their app for free, and just for today. Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Farm is a fun book app designed for kids 7 and younger, but anyone could enjoy the fun reading, no matter of the age. (Note: it is not free anymore. But it is totally worth the $0.99!)
It is a continuation of the puzzle idea from another fun app Animal SnApp: Farm. In Animal SnApp: Farm, kids match two half pictures to form an animal. When they correctly put two pieces together they unlock a story of the animal on the picture.
In Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Farm, kids still have to match the two pieces of an animal’s picture together. However, they don’t have to wait till they find the correct match to read a story. Every match is a fun story at Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Farm. All kids have to do is to swipe any part of the screen to find different combinations of animal halves. What do you get when you cross a goat with a turkey? A gurkey, of course! What about a pig with a sheep? Well, that would be a peep, naturally! There are 121 different combinations, each has a silly hybrid name and a story with rhymes read aloud by a child accompanied with fun farmyard music. Kids will enjoy the reading about gurkey or peep.
The app features brand new animal artwork and poems from Axel Scheffler, illustrator of the picture book modern classic The Gruffalo. Like other Nosy Crow’s book apps, it is read by a child, making it more attractive to kids.
Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Farm combines rich reading, audio and illustration content into a single activity, kids will have hours of fun with this simple yet brilliant app.
