Based on Elizabeth Gordon’s “Bird Children,” Learning Sounds with Birds is the third in a series of “Mother Earth’s Preschool” apps by iTunes Store favorite Once Upon an App.
This interactive, educational app is a great introduction for young children ready to learn and identify birds.
The app begins with 12 illustrations of common birds. The child selects a bird, and is given the choice of three varying sounds — like a doorbell, a dog bark, as well as the actual bird call. The child must choose the correct bird call before proceeding to a classic illustration and whimsical poem about the bird. The exercise closes with a beautiful photographic image of the bird and useful, simple facts.
Learning Sounds with Birds is a GREAT way to introduce your child to the joy of bird watching.
