Are you looking for a fun new app for your kids? Preferably one that is inexpensive? I’ve got one for you today!
I just spent some time reading King Laurin and His Rose Garden, and it is a very interesting story about the Dolomites (a mountain range in northeastern Italy) and why they seem glow red twice a day.
If your child is interested in kings, queens, brave knights and a bit of magic, then this story won’t disappoint. The pages are interactive to keep little ones engaged, and the story is not too lengthy, so a younger child will be able to stay focused. The makers of the app recommend it for kids as young as 4, and that seems right to me based on the content of the story. My favorite page of the story is the scene where the knights fight. Kids can move the knights around the page to do battle with one another (no worries, there is nothing violent to see…you just hear swords clashing).
Evidently the story of King Laurin is a familiar one in Europe, though it is new to me. Have you heard it before? Because the app has an appeal beyond an American audience, it can be listened to in English, Italian and German. So if you happen to be teaching one of those languages at home, this is a great addition to your library!
King Laurin and His Rose Garden is available on Itunes for a very affordable $1.99. That’s pretty much like renting a Redbox video for a night, only you get to keep this app and enjoy it any time!
