Ant and Grasshopper Kids Book is a storybook app that offers children a chance to learn valuable life lessons. With fun graphics, a quaint story, and the opportunity to play an interactive game, this app has the potential to be highly engaging with a few tweaks.
- Narration options (read to me, read to myself)
- Food storing game
- Choose an ending
At first glance, Ant and Grasshopper is an easy to use storybook app for kids that offer unique illustrations and an engaging story to teach children valuable life lessons. The user interface is easy to use as it includes arrows at the bottom of each page to help children move through the app easily as well as narration options for early readers. Overall, the developers have done a nice job making this app easy to use.
While this app isn’t your typical educational app, it does offer children a chance to practice their reading skills while learning valuable life lessons about hard work. The Ant and Grasshopper story is one that is well-known and it offers children a nice lesson in learning to plan and do the work in order to prepare for the “winter”. The alternate ending also teaches children a lesson about sharing. While the developers have included narration options for children to use as they move through the app, they have not included text-highlighting which would add a bit more educational value for early readers.
Ant and Grasshopper offers music, a great story, an option to choose an ending as well as a game for children to enjoy. With all of that included, it really is a great app for entertainment for children of all ages. The food collection game encourages children to help the ant collect food for the winter. It’s easy, fun and a great addition in order to enhance the entertainment value of the app.
Ant and Grasshopper is a free app which offers the narration options, the food collection game, and a great story without any additional cost. Parents will want to know that there is an option to upgrade the app and remove the ads that are scattered throughout the app which is a bit disappointing. It’s expected that children’s apps do not include unprotected links and advertisements. Parents will likely be disappointed that they have to pay to keep children protected from external advertisements throughout the app.
The developers have included some very child-friendly features in the app including narration options and an easy to use interface. Unfortunately, the rest of the app is full of unprotected advertisements and pop-ups that distract children from the app itself. As a parent it’s really disappointing to find such a great story that has so many unprotected links that will distract children from the content of the app.
If it is necessary to include advertisements and other links, it would be nice to have them housed under a protected link that parents have access to. Doing so will allow children to enjoy the app without being distracted.
- NO social media links
- YES advertisements (unprotected, visible)
- YES more apps (unprotected, visible)
- YES external links (unprotected, visible)
Ant and Grasshopper is a classic kids story that teaches children great life lessons in a fun storybook app. This app is not recommended for young children as it includes unprotected links and advertisements.
