Elfishiki and the Unwelcome Guest

My daughter loves books whether in print or on the iPad. I was thrilled to get a chance to review the app Elfishki and The Unwelcome Guest.

This app is a cute story with appealing graphics. My daughter loves it.
Here is a description of the story:
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.

One morning, an ice cream seller named Vince and his friend, a dragon named Brungildo, went to their garage for the freezer boxes. But they couldn't get inside. Vince kept putting his key into the keyhole, but it would just fall out—as if somebody pushed it back. Vince peeked into the keyhole and was dumbfounded—inside the lock was a tiny blue person with a tail...


This is another app similar to the Elfishki Giant Cake app that I reviewed prior.
Included on this app are the following:
1. English, Spanish and Russian versions of the app included absolutely free.
2. Original, not found anywhere else captivating texts, designed to develop your child’s conscious reading skills - according to the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts.
3. Stunning interactive art, classic animation and videos.
3. Fun, interactive elements on EVERY page.
4. Professional Audio Voice over of the story, so your child can listen along with the text.
5. THREE(3) Questions on every page of the book specifically designed to help your child analyze the text, boost their imagination and make predictions about the story.
6. A bonus game specifically designed to test your child's attention to detail - Help Jeanso Pack his Backpack.

I love that each page of the story has 3 thought provoking questions for my kids to answer.  The graphics are awesome and my children love to play the bonus game. The audio of the story is nice to listen too.

Overall this app is a huge hit with my kids.
