The Woolly Mammoth, one of the last prehistoric animals to traverse the Earth, works endlessly to feed himself the 200 lbs of food he needs on a daily basis. Find out how he bests his predators and goes about his day. At the story end there is additional information about these magnificent beasts, written in such a way that the young can easily follow.
With all Oceanhouse Media apps, everything on each page is tappable, with the word of the item shown and said out loud. In addition, one can tap a word in the story to hear it again, or double tap to hear the sentence again. There are many other creatures from the same time period within the story, so if you're having a, “It's called a what?” moment, having the ability to see and hear the names again is very handy. Words are highlighted as the story is read. If you want to record and share your own rendition, they have you covered! The app is accompanied by great background music and sounds that one would expect in this time period. The artwork is fantastic!
