Have a look:
The new animal friends that Puppup meets range from chimpanzees to tortoises and zebras. Join Puppup as he meets 16 different animals. Each animal is animated and interactive. They are each trying to help Puppup find his family again in their own way.
The story itself is illustrated in a uniquely interesting way. It seems as if the images are painted around photographs of Puppup and the animals. The characters of the story are so crisp and clear, with softly painted backgrounds and details. Each page of the story has an interactive component as well. From night falling on a camping trip, to Julia swimming by, readers can tap to animate the screen. Most screens also have sound effects or music. A nice twist to the layout is a variety of font sizes and locations.
What Fun Educational Apps Liked
The Adventures of Puppup is a very sweet story about a stuffed animal’s adventure. What child doesn’t dream of their stuffed animals having adventures? I think my favorite aspect of the story is the authenticity of the animals from the zoo. Each animal does something unique to that species (Okay – except for the penguin waterskiing!) and it all ties together beautifully. I like that while this isn’t necessarily an educational story, readers still learn tidbits about the different animals. For instance, the giant tortoise moves too slowly for Puppup and the zebra kicks up clouds of dust because it is so fast. Even I learned that the nubs on top of a giraffe are called ossicones!
Overall, The Adventures of Puppup: Lost at the Zoo is a sweet story, sure to appeal to young readers. The combination of animations, imagery, and zoo animals is a winner for the under six crowd. The story gives life to an adventure most children can easily imagine for their own stuffed animals.
