The National Wildlife Federation has pulled out all the bells and whistles for its latest apps, which have been written up by USAToday.com, Parents.com and the New York Times, and named one of the Top 10 Kids’ Apps by Entertainment Weekly.
Check out how your children can learn more about animals while having fun. There are two apps for various ages, see details and screen shots below. My almost 5 year old is going to love learning with Ranger Rick Jr. Appventures!
Ranger Rick’s Tree House (ages 7-12)
Forget turning pages, this iPad magazine (available on Newsstand) has content organized by rooms in a tree house! Each room is packed with real-life animal videos, comic adventures, multi-level games, goofy jokes, nature crafts, wildlife mysteries, and opportunities for kids to earn badges. No other digital children’s magazine is more innovative, interactive, or just plain fun!
Ranger Rick Jr. Appventures (ages 4-7)
This new iPad story app lets young kids use cutting-edge technology to Explore, Create, and Play their way through incredible animal adventures. Every Appventure includes an interactive photo story, engaging games, and creative play activities—all centered around a specific animal. The first one in the series opens with a ROAR as mascot Ricky Raccoon and his friend Lars the Lion take children on a trip to the African grasslands. There they discover how lions spend their days, raise their young, and much more!
