Billy's Coin Visits the Zoo

Age Level: Ages 0–5, Ages 5-8
By Developer: Spinlight Studio

Bill's Coin Visits the Zoo is a delightful little rhyming storybook about a boy that is given a coin by his mother for a visit the zoo, which Billy promptly looses in a drain. From animal to animal, the coin is tossed, rolled, bounced, dropped and finally back to Billy to put into a toy machine. As the coin rolls along, all kinds of animals interact with it, with the help of the player. Children will have fun moving the coin about the pages and moving the story along. The book includes professional narration, the choice of highlighted words and beautiful artwork. All the drawings resemble stitched fabric, making up each aspect of the pictures.

At the end of the book Billy places the coin into a toy machine where he receives a stuffed animal that looks just like one of the zoo animals in the story. One is then taken to a page in which the toy machine sits on the upper right-hand corner. Tap the toy machine and learn several fun facts about the animal. Collect all 12 with each retelling of the story!

The settings allow for a choice of a male or female voice, as well as turning the narration on/off. Perfect for early readers.
