iPad App Review: Elfishki and the Giant Cake

Elfishki and the Giant Cake

Once upon a time, on the beautiful Rainbow Island in the middle of the Sparkling Sea lived magical little people called Elfishki.

Some of them could fly like butterflies and some could swim like mermaids. They shared the island with animals who could speak and trees who did not talk, but understood everything. All in all, this was a place where miracles happened every day.

Elfizz was an owner of a gloomy restaurant named Chest of Ghosts where the staff was eager to please ghosts. On the opposite side of the square was a bakery, Gingerbread Nook, run by a pretty plump Elfishki lady called Maggie. The two were at odds with each other until one day they had to work side by side...

This app is a fun educational interactive iPad book for kids. The Giant Cake is the first kids’ bedtime story in the Fairy Tales, Myths, and Legends of Elfishki series.

Features & Benefits:
• Animated pictures
original music and sound effects
a game to boost children’s imagination and creativity
• Answer such questions as who, what, where, when, why, and how.
• Acknowledge and appreciate differences in the points of view of the characters in the short story.
• Use illustrations and details in the kids’ stories to describe characters, settings, or events.
• Recall prior knowledge related to the information and events in the text.
• Make and confirm predictions about what will happen next in the fairy tale text.

Little Brandon was thrilled to try out this new interactive story and game. I was excited too to see more of the creativity of this app. I love the vibrant colors. Other than the cute animated illustrations, children can learn to develop their reading and comprehension skills. After every story on each page, there are comprehension questions. We both love iPad storybooks with touch and tap animations. It gives Brandon a feel of being part of the story.

Little Brandon just loves to decorate the cake. This is great for boosting his creativity and imagination.
