The story is setup like this…on the day of the rhino’s royal visit, Prince Badou learns that Ambassador Crocodylus is going to play a trick on King Babar…the sneaky croc’s marching band is going to learn a special welcome song that sounds just plain awful! Do you think that Badou can stop the silly prank and save the day? You will have to read to find out!
Kids will love interacting with their favorite characters from the “Babar and the Adventures of Badou” series. There are three reading modes to support various skill levels: Read & Play, Read To Me, or Quiet Reading (perfect for bedtime)! The app is highly interactive and features lots of surprise tappable animations and special effects on each and every page. In addition to the story, there are also six educational and entertaining activities for kids to enjoy: 1) a sing-along music video, 2) a “Go Bananas!” game, 3) a search-and-find Badou’s Treasure Hunt game, 4) an Alphabet Derby game, 5) a Music Maker game, and 6) tap-to-paint coloring pages, including paint buckets, brushes and fun stickers! There is also a Grown-Up’s Corner for parents to review – it contains thoughtful questions to stimulate conversations with your child about the story to help them improve their reading comprehension skills.
I really enjoyed the Babar & Badou’s Musical Marching Band app. I would definitely recommend this app to parents of young children, especially those who enjoy the Babar series. I will be playing this app more with my son for sure!
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this app for review purposes.
