Kids get to help a farmer hunt for his missing goose. Along the way, they’ll meet all of his wacky farm animals. Every page of the story paints itself right before their eyes, inspiring them to create their own art. Plus, to help kids learn to read, each word appears on the screen as it is read aloud. Kids love participating along with this story, because as the farmer searches for his missing goose, a chorus of kids and some industrious mice help with audio prompts and simple animations.
BEHIND THE SCENES BOOK
After reading the story and playing the games, kids (and adults too) will enjoy going behind the scenes to see illustrator, Jennifer Smyth Church, hard at work. Follow Jennifer as she conducts research at a local farm, gathers inspiration, and finishes her beautiful hand-painted illustrations.
The 15-level puzzle game starts with a series of 6-piece puzzles, then moves on to 9-piece puzzles, and finally to 12-piece puzzles. The puzzles have been extensively tested with small children to ensure the right balance of challenge and success. The pieces are calibrated to snap into place when they are positioned “close-enough” to where they should go. This is a great way to introduce kids to puzzles and help them get the concept.
Kids will love matching pairs of animals hiding behind haystacks. The 6-level matching game starts off with 6-haystacks to match, then moves on to 8, 10, 12, 18, and 24 haystacks to match. This matching game is a great and fun way to develop a child’s memory skills.
ANIMAL WRANGLING GAME
Kids have to drag animals to a zoo or to a barn in the animal wrangling game. The game will continue forever, so it can be a great way to keep little ones busy. Hint: the cheetah belongs in the zoo!
