There’s nothing boring about a prairie—especially in this book-app romp through the great grasslands of North America followed by a matching game. Nature in all her glory built the prairie to be full of excitement and beauty, and this new book-app takes children on a vivid journey above, below, and all around.
Underground views show “the diggers, with tunnels so steep, making soft burrows where prairie pups sleep.” Aerial views show “the birds that sing and fly, chomping the insects that bring pollen by.” Plus the grazers, the predators, fire, and rain each have an important role in this dynamic habitat.
Choose between “Read to Me” and “Read to Myself.”
Touch the animals and watch them move with distinctive true-to-life actions.
Play the matching game—see how many creatures you can match with their names!
All information is scientifically accurate. The author gives simple but accurate background information about swamps and each animal featured.
