As parents, it is our jobs to get kids excited to read. But with so many toys (and apps!) to distract them nowadays, such a task can prove to be difficult.
Today I have an app that hopefully will help you engage your little readers: Jörgits & the End of Winter. An original children’s novel by Tank & Bear, it comprises 160 pages interspersed with interactive musical scenes, whimsical diagrams, and animated videos.
The End of Winter
The stars of the novel is the Jörgits, a group of furry aliens whose home planet, Jöerg, is growing too cold for them. So they embark on quest to a nearby star which is rapidly heating up — Earth — and set out for the Hawaiian islands. Unfortunately there is a problem on the way, and their ship crash land into a sea just outside of Helsinki in the middle of winter.
