When Treasure Kai awakes from his treasure hunting dream to find a real treasure map and clue in his pocket, it’s the start of a whirlwind adventure sending him back in time to race Francisco Coronado for the Seven Lost Cities of Gold.
Can Treasure Kai trust the clues, conquer his fears and beat the conquistadors to save the Seven Cities of Gold? With his best friend Kate and you, he just might do it.
But only if your memory can help him get home!
Designed to make reading comprehension interactive and fun, “Treasure Kai and the Seven Cities of Gold” is a completely unique storybook app adventure game.
Unlike most book apps, you experience this story in a completely different way, making you part of the adventure.
It starts out the same as other books as you turn the pages to reveal the quest.
But then a treasure map appears with seven golden keys locked in place.
The keys fly off the map and disappear into scrambling chests!
You then randomly open treasure chests, revealing gold keys to place back on the map in order to transport to the next City of Gold.
Once you’ve discovered all seven keys, you must remember the order you visited the cities to get Treasure Kai home!
It’s a twist on choose-your-adventure with each reading of the story is different. Kids read-play over and over.
