As someone who has always loved ladybugs, I found this app very informative and amusing. I’ve always admired their daintiness and their unique features, but I knew nothing about them.
This storybook-type app opened my eyes to amazing facts about these cute little creatures. Information about their body parts and how they function, their diet, and more, is nestled into a story that follows a ladybug on its adventures.
Along with being chock-full of data, this app also serves as a tool to develop reading skills. There are “read aloud,” “read it myself,” and “autoplay” options. Words are highlighted as they’re read, and in the “read it myself option,” you can tap the word to hear it pronounced. Another cool feature is that you can tap any object on the page to listen to its name.
This app has some fascinating facts, and I would highly recommend to any bug enthusiasts! I want to mention that there are a couple of parts that depict and explain bugs being eaten or pursued. I believe it’s done in an informative fashion, displaying the cycle of life and the food chain, but I think it is worth mentioning for those who are more sensitive to that content.
Available for download through iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Appstore. (Only tested on an iPhone.)
