Elfishki and the Unwelcome Guest Interactive iPad Storybook {Review}

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of reviewing Elfishki and the Giant Cake with my 5-year-old daughter Hailey.  It has since become one of her favorite interactive stories on the iPad.

These interactive stories are short and delightful.  They are perfect for kids ages 5 through 9 and encourage a love of reading.  I’ll add that my almost 10-year-old son enjoys them as well.  With the app, kids have the option of reading independently or having the story read to them.   The graphics are vibrant and detailed, and they do a wonderful job of illustrating each step of the story.  Even better, stories are multi-lingual, so you have the option of having the story read in English, Spanish or Russian.  Kids can interact with the storybook pages and enjoy fun activities to help improve reading comprehension. Because of all of the interaction, I find that it entertains my daughter longer, therefore increasing her overall reading time.

We were once again given the opportunity to review one of these fun interactive storybooks; this time the title is Elfishki and the Unwelcome Guest.  Check out this fun video preview:

If your child enjoys fairy tales, myths and legends, the Elfishki series is for you!  Elfishki and the Unwelcome Guest tells the story of Vince, an ice cream maker and his dragon Brungildo.  One day, when Vince goes to his garage to get the ice cream, he find something stuck in the lock. As they peek into the lock, they find Jeanso, a tiny fairy like creature with a story to tell and the desire to find a new home… I think I’ll stop here before I give too much of the story away!

This fun story can be downloaded for your enjoyment for just $2.99 in iTunes.  In addition to the story and interactive graphics, Elfishki and the Unwelcome guest also has a link to a fun hidden treasures game (which is one of my daughter’s favorite parts of the app).  Even better, there is a full series of books and games featuring the Elfishki characters, which you can learn more about by heading over to their website HERE. In addition, I encourage that you follow on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date on new titles, promotions and more!
