App DescriptionWant a good kid's story that also teaches about being safe around streets?
This first-in-a-series story introduces lovable toddler Loris and her older brother. When their ball goes into the street, Loris chases after it, not realizing that a car is coming. You and your child get to decide how to safely retrieve the ball from the other side of the street. Each of the three choices reinforce a different positive behavior, and your child will want to explore all three! Each time through the story they'll gain practice in being safe.
