App Description

Elly the Reindeer and friends return in her 13th adventure – the garden!

It’s Spring and Elly decides that she needs to tidy up her very overgrown garden so she asks her friends to come round and help her out. Harry, Fin, Aapo and Owl soon arrive with gardening tools and seeds to plant.

This latest Elly app both entertains and educates the very young with a garden and planting themed adventure. In addition to introducing children to everyday vegetables, this app also contains a simple interactive game to help word and vegetable recognition.

With light interactivity and optional narration your child will delight in meeting Elly and all her cute friends, and will want to read the simple, fun, easy-to-follow stories again and again.

All the Elly book apps have charted in top 100 iPad books around the world and had over 25,000 downloads as well as being translated into Japanese. Regularly featured by Apple around the globe, here's what the critics have said about the Elly apps.

“The Elly the Reindeer series of eBooks for toddlers is cute as a button! They seem simplistic in design, but young children love to have their parents read them to them at bedtime, and anytime! The Read-to-Me narration adds the option of letting your child interact with the app by themselves too!” appsforipads.net

“The books in this series truly are a delight.” Teacherswithapps.com

“I hope there are more Elly stories to come; it is by far my son’s favorite series of ebooks” giggleapps.com

“It is perfect for reading to young children at any time of day. With or without narration, this series is delightful and engaging for young readers and listeners.” Digital-storytime.com

"The apps have clean and beautifully structured illustrations, that make excellent use of colors and proportions, really helping on our kids’ visual education. Stories are simple and fun, the ones that kids ask us to read over and over." iphone4kids.net (Apps4kids)

"Elly the Reindeer is back! This marks her tenth app and they just keep getting better and better.” theiphonemom
