App DescriptionSend your young ones on an exotic adventure with tiger cubs Lara and Chris and their best friend Lulu the pink elephant! Watch as they are absorbed by the brilliant illustrations, interactive game-play, and a read-along story complete with professional narration. As with all READ and PLAY apps, The Queen of The Mangrove combines an adorable story with an interactive game at the end—an exciting combination that keeps children engaged for hours of entertainment and learning.
The story section tells the exciting tale of Lara, Chris, and Lulu, three best friends who stumble upon a clue that leads them on a treasure hunt! At the end of their exhilarating search throughout the mangrove forest they come upon a treasure chest! Designed for children 3-7, the colorfully illustrated pages, complete with cheerful music and playful animations, get your young ones reading and keep them glued to the pages. Children may choose to read the story themselves, or listen to the story as it is read aloud by the narrator.
The game section of the app ties in to the story – after reading about the best friends’ treasure hunt in the forest, children play to unlock the treasure by matching correctly-shaped keys with various locks. How many tries will it take before the three friends can get to the treasure? Children try to match the keys with the locks in as few tries as possible, and are rewarded when the locks spring open.
