When a strange creature appears after the big rains, Australian animals wonder what he could be! His fur, feet, tail, and duck-like bill remind each animal of something different. But with a “down-under” spirit, they all pitch in to help him discover where he belongs. Kersplatypus is the story of one creature’s journey to find his place in the world and how he sometimes falls flat on the way there.
This individual eBook App will read-aloud in both English and Spanish with manual or auto page advance. Switch language any time and the page text changes and the reading restarts on the same page with your newly selected language.
Kersplatypus is designed to be both a fun-to-read story and a launch pad for discussion and learning. It features a 4-page For Creative Minds educational section in the back. And, through the "More.." button on the navigation bar, you will find a 32-page cross-curricular Teaching Activity Guide (includes 3 coloring pages available for printing on our website), 3 interactive quizzes (Reading Comprehension, For Creative Minds, & Math Word Problems), a page of Related Websites (linked with parent gate) for further study, and a short trailer.
There is also an optional login feature (on the navbar with parent gate) so that you can view Kersplatypus on your computers (login through our homepage), androids (new App available in March), and other devices). The login also enables eBook access though our free Fun eReader App and consolidation with other Arbordale titles.
