NAMED ONE OF THE GUARDIAN'S "BEST 50 APPS FOR KIDS 2013" **** "This is great fun: an animated app teaching children the various plural nouns for animals: monkeys, bats, owls, parrots and so on. It's a musical story, too, with a theme song that will be nagging on your internal jukebox for hours after you use the app with your children." —The Guardian, "Best 50 Apps for Kids 2013" **** "Troop is a wonderful app - lively, fun, and (shhhh) educational!" — Linda Arms White, Christopher Award-Winning Author of "I Could Do That! Esther Morris Gets Women the Vote" **** "A Troop Is a Group of Monkeys is SO much fun! Not only is it well written — but the interaction actually made me BURST out laughing at a couple of points! It's charming, adorable, and definitely my newest favorite!" — Katie Davis, award-winning author/illustrator and host of the #1 children's literature podcast Brain Burps About Books .......................................................... "A Troop is a Group of Monkeys" is an interactive book for kids that introduces some of the fun plural nouns for animal groups (like "a pride of lions") in a musical, rhyming story. Written by Julie Hedlund and illustrated by Pamela Baron, the app features original music by Tim McCanna, whose ditty you won't be able to stop humming until long after the book is closed. Each of the animal groups—a troop of monkeys, a colony of bats—comes to life on the screen and invites young readers to enjoy interactive play while reinforcing the vocabulary words on each page. The crocodiles snap their jaws, and the lions lick their paws. What do you suppose the skunks will do? This story is tied to Common Core standards and includes information for teachers and parents on how to enhance a reader's comprehension with reading strategies and activity ideas. A great holiday gift idea is the hardcover book version of "A Troop is a Group of Monkeys"! It's on sale on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble throughout the holidays.
