Gilbert Gas is one of the 26 Quirkles scientists. In this book, Gilbert Gas and his friend, Gary Goat will explain to kids what is carbon dioxide and what it is good for. Gary Goat dropped a bottle of “gola” on the ground and the bottle popped open making all the mess. What happened next?
Kids will learn why the bottle popped open, and how plants need carbon dioxide to live.
After reading the book, kids can try two hands-on science experiments. They will enjoy watching things pop, fizz, and blow up!
There is no narration in the app. However, if kids like, they can record their own reading or parents’ reading on each page. After they record the reading, they can listen to the book read by a familiar voice.
The app also has 3 games: matching, puzzles, and coloring.
The contents of the book is for preschool to early elementary kids. However, the text is small, so kids will need someone to read the book to them. You can use the recording feature we mentioned earlier if kids want to read it themselves.
