Parents often ask what basic concepts should their preschoolers know before entering Kindergarten. We love to check off lists of concepts to learn but it’s so easy to be carried away and overwhelm our young learners with worksheets upon worksheets. That is why I always value storybook apps that are both entertaining and educational as it gets young readers to learn concepts without them realizing it.
One Giggly Gorilla, the sequel to the highly acclaimed Ten Giggly Gorillas, is both a storybook and a fun educational game app that skilfully incorporates a series of basic preschool concepts and thinking skills activities.
The story begins with one gorilla hanging at the bottom of a tree and as he climbs further up the tree, he meets more gorillas who are also on the way up to the top of the tree for bananas. But these cheeky gorillas just won’t let the readers have it easy. Preschoolers have to listen carefully to descriptions, comprehend and follow instructions, count, observe, recognize colors, sequence and problem solve in order to advance the story.
Each page presents a unique and fun activity for kids to complete plus a hidden toucan to find. I have no doubt that your preschooler will love to lend a finger to flick the correct gorilla higher up the tree or perhaps tap on the wrong gorilla just to hear what naughty things it will say. There is even a surprise move when all the gorillas have reached the top of the tree.
This is one superb storybook app with beautiful visuals, great 3D animations, realistic forest sound in the background, amusing dialogue, engaging narration and imaginative rhyming text. Furthermore, the words are highlighted in sync with the narration and the length of the story is just right for the target audience.
So, why should you settle for a typical storybook app when you can have one that is entertaining with cute characters and filled with fun interactions that work on concepts and thinking skills appropriate for preschool – like One Giggly Gorilla. Check it out today!
