Amazing Amphibians is a stunning realistic 3D app that is packed with educational play.
Begin with the story of the life of a frog. With highlighted words, an in-app dictionary and life-like graphics. It is a page after page “WOW” experience. The story can be read via “Storybook”, where the story will be read to you, or a “Read By Yourself” version. You can even record your own voice while following highlighted words - I would use a headset for the feature. And just to go the extra mile, the recording feature comes with a voice changing feature, adding a touch of amusement. Pan around the book and games for an incredible 3D experience.
There is definitely a LOT to learn about amphibians in this app, but the buck doesn't stop there. While playing the Scavenger Hunt game, you will find 21 different animals. While locating them, you will learn interesting facts. Tap more than once and get additional details. See if you can find all 21 and receive a bonus!
Test your knowledge and skill by playing Frog Quest, including 3 levels. Guide your frog around the game board to snatch up all the stars and receive points. Better be quick and sure, or you may be eaten by spiders, or bested by other creatures. Gather up the yellow orbs and answer questions related to interesting facts learned in the story. Correct answers win you points! Top scores advance you to the next level of play. At the end of the game you will see your awards!
