Expand Their Knowledge

Here's a chance to expand your child's knowledge and get them interested in something they may not know anything about. The Basileo app has been designed specifically for kids aged six through eight and gives them a chance to enjoy some of the most well-known Greek myths. Now here's the twist: this is done so in an interactive way so it really captures their attention and imagination. The app boasts an original soundtrack, 23 hand-made illustrations in beautiful detail and color, and the narrator supports three different languages (English, Italian, and French, Spanish will be added as well). The text in the book can be enjoyed in all four languages at this point.

This app has just gone through some performance improvements, bug fixes, the addition of character cards to help kids learn more, and they can now draw and color within the app. The app doesn't yet have a customer rating but the comments are painting a clear picture that this one is really hitting the mark with kids.

Ancient Doesn't Mean Boring or Dull

Just because kids will be learning about ancient Greek myths doesn't meant the experience has to be boring or dull; in fact, with the Basileo app it's impossible to have anything but an engaging, entertaining, and fun experience. Here kids will be working their way through the pages as they learn about various myths and Greek Gods. Basileo, who is a centaur, will act as your child's guide taking them through all the different stories. The experience is audio, visual, and interactive so many of your child's senses are engaged.
