Adventure at Local Dump
The first in a series of two apps, this book app tells a story about a little kid named Nico and his eco-conscious babysitter Hannah. Hannah takes Nico on a trip to "the mountains," but instead of heading into the wilds of nature, they travel to "the mountains" that loom inside the local dump.
As Hannah explains things to Nico, readers likewise learn the importance of recycling and "reusing" items. The Green Minstrel narrates the story (and occasionally sings) as the words highlight on the page.
The app has animations but very few interactions. However, a powerful environmental message comes through in a way that seems natural instead of preachy.
Green Radventures: Book 1 HD is a great read for eco-friendly kids.
