The Jungle Book (best free Android apps for kids)
The Jungle Book is a free storybook app from Fox & Sheep. Narration is provided in English and German and can be turned off for independent readers, or when a parent reads the story. I am passionate about reading to children, and think this is a good storybook app to have for that purpose. The illustrations are excellent and the interactive elements are minimal, making this a great book for parents to share with their kids because the best interaction is between parent and child during a book reading.
The main criticism I have of this app is that the text takes up too much of the screen and seems to cover important aspects of the illustrations. Twelve pages tell the story of Mowgli, the little boy lost, who was raised by wolves. He is taught and protected by the wolves, a bear and a panther, and learns to stay away from the monkeys (actually apes) and the tiger. An interesting exploration of family and belonging, and an acceptance of greater purpose. You may well have a collection of versions of The Jungle Book on your bookshelf and on your tablet. Make sure this is one of them.
