Apps for Children: Peek-a-Zoo
Toddlers and preschoolers can work on interpreting facial expressions and behaviors with this sweet and engaging app from Duck Duck Moose.
Peek-a-Zoo's cast of animated animals appear eight at a time on a solid-colored screen along with a question, which is read aloud. Players have to determine which character is tired, winking, having a birthday, etc. and then identify the animal by tapping on it. For example, when asked "who is angry?", players are clued in by the character with the frown and furrowed eyebrows. The clean interface, simple controls, and cheerful characters provide an easy and fun way for families to talk about feelings and expressions.
Peek-a-Zoo is available for $1.99 on the iTunes App Store.
