App Description

Meet Franklin!

The first in an innovative new series of non-fiction apps based on circular characters whose real life stories start where they end. Rounds: Franklin Frog follows the life cycle of a frog with beautifully simple narrative and design motifs.

Illustrated in a bold, graphic style – using only circles and divisions of circles – and with ingenious interactivity, original music and lively child voice narration, this delightful app is both educational and fun.

* Learn about biology with dozens of fun facts about frogs

* Join in with every stage of a frogs life - hopping, swimming, eating, hibernating, laying frogspawn, and growing from a tadpole
