“ABC Wildlife!” is an app which helps introduce animals and letters to kids with the use of pictures, videos and animal facts. Tap on a letter, and then scroll through corresponding pictures of an animal that starts with the same letter chosen. At the bottom of the screen, the animal will be spelled out and any of these letters can also be chosen as well, or you can choose your favorite from the index. If online, the animal's picture can be tapped, and you are connected to a YouTube video, or just read about your choice by tapping the question mark.
I think the photos and the background music used are nicely done, as are the facts about each animal, and I really like how an index is included which keeps track of what photos you have already looked at.
I do however, think that waiting for the YouTube videos to load can take me out of the experience. We love the aardvarks and the other videos shot in places like zoos, but the quality of some of the other videos can be rough, many of them being without any useful sound, and can sometimes be too long or to short. I am glad the index lets you be selective.
I like the fact that there is a lot to look at and read even without an internet connection. I would like it if they could also add animal sounds. My son would love the facts to be narrated so he can enjoy this section if I am not available to read them to him.
