App DescriptionSend your young one on an exciting journey with Ryan Ant and his family. Watch as your children are absorbed by the brilliant illustrations, interactive game-play, and read-along story complete with professional narration. As with all READ and PLAY apps, Ryan Ant’s Cool Swim 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 tale of Ryan, a young ant who convinces his family to follow him on a summer trek to the legendary river! The Ant Family hikes up and down in search of the river in an attempt to beat the heat. Designed for children 3-7, the colorful illustrations - complete with cheerful music and fun 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 Ant Family’s search for the river, children help the Ants pack for their long hike. Remember! The summer heat is very strong! Tap only the necessities to help the Ant Family keep their packs light. How many tries will it take to get the supplies right? Children try to identify the necessary items in as few tries as possible, and are rewarded with encouraging sounds when an item is added to the pack.
