Who Lives in the Forest, is an adorable app with whimsical illustrations and animations that children will love. The background music and sound effects add to the overall quality of the app by bringing each game to life as children play. The developers have done a great job with the set up of the app, making it easy to use for children of all ages as they have included simple guidance that helps players get started with each activity. The increasing difficulty for each activity also makes this app one that can be enjoyed for a long time.
This app is great for teaching children a bit about animals. Not only will they learn where these animals live, but also what they eat, how they grow, along with many other fun facts. For instance, the rabbit activity shows various underground paths that it can take to get the apples that are falling from the trees. This teaches children how rabbits burrow under the ground while also allowing them to work on their problem solving skills as they move through the maze. The other activities challenge children to use their logic and memory as well.
The slideshow that is included also provides fun facts about each animal, providing another educational opportunity. The slideshow shows pictures as well as written information for children to read through, however it does not provide a narrated version to help younger users. Adding this element with text highlighting would allow children to follow along and and practice their reading skills.
In addition to fun facts children will learn, this app is a ton of fun. Each activity is easy to use and will provide for hours of fun. As children complete each activity, they can replay it with an automatic increased difficulty that will continue to challenge them the more they play. Some of the activities include children collecting stars as they follow an under water maze or trying to beat the clock and feed the frog as many bugs as possible. With so many activities to complete, this app is going to provide hours of educational fun!
Priced at just under two dollars this app is a great value! Not only will children learn a lot about the various forest animals, but they are able to have endless fun with automatic increased difficulty each time they play. Parents are certainly going to find this app to be a great deal!
Who Lives in the Forest is not only easy to use, but it’s safe for kids to use too. The developers have done a great job ensuring children will be protected from outside links as the settings and other apps buttons are protected. Each activity is also very intuitive and doesn’t require a ton of instruction, however there is a brief guide that shows children what to do for each activity.
The only thing that would make this app a bit more child friendly is adding narration for the text in the slideshow. This would allow early readers to follow along as they learn more info about each animal.
