Review: Lyrebird Park

This educational story will make your little ones laugh...at the same time they are finding out all about lyrebirds (and a little about human behaviour too).

View on the App Store: Lyrebird Park - Susan Syddall

Features of Lyrebird Park:

  • Learn about the Lyrebird's preferences and talents.
  • Activity pages to provide extra puzzles, mazes and spelling.
  • Guide Notes to help you uncover educational possibilities around the story.
  • Observe how the humans behave as a result of the Lyrebird's antics.
  • An fun environmental adventure about a very clever animal and how it protects itself from potential intruders.
It all starts out with a sign: 'Welcome to Lyrebird  Park', which has been painted over with 'DO NOT ENTER Lyrebird Park', by the Lyrebird.  

The information at the beginning of the App sets the context of the story, Lyrebirds are very shy and they prefer to be alone, away from humans.  They can also make the sounds of other animals and machinery...and so the story is set!

Watch the excellently expressive illustrations bring the clever and funny story to life!

A picnic in the Park for Mum, Dad and baby changes fast as Lyrebird chases them away with mimicry. Pretending to be a lion,  bear, crocodile and a snake the Lyrebird manages to frighten off the family.  Only the baby can see what's really going on.  It is very funny.

The GUIDE NOTES are a huge bonus in Children and Stories Apps, it sets them apart from other book Apps. It is a good idea to read through the suggested topics before you engage your child in this story.  

You will gets lots of ideas for learning opportunities when reading this book.  Projects for older children in various subjects,  question and answer possibilities for young children and simple educational conversation topics for you and your toddler about the story or animals in it.

The Guide Note subjects include maths, language,  art, literacy, environment and social, emotional and moral development. 

There are 8 ACTIVITY PAGES.  They include 4 great mazes with increasing difficulty, find the hidden words, story sequencing and spelling. This provides many extra puzzles for your child and ways for them to learn around the story.

This iPad App is recommended by: iPad Mum - Google Plus
