Welcome to App Friday, our weekly link exchange of family-friendly apps. Today we are featuring an app for the Android Market that keeps our brains guessing: Kids Riddles by Okenko Books! Jitka and the team at Okenko Books are working diligently on an exciting new line of children’s books for multiple platforms (iPhone, iPad, Android and Kindle are all part of their multi-platform strategy). So what is beautifully illustrated, fun to read, and a thoughtful challenge for the whole family? The answer lies in this post!
What is your app about? Kids Riddles are classic riddles for kids with picture answers. Riddles are a part of oral traditions which ignite curiosity, imagination and logical thinking. They contain a simple sequence of pages; a text of the riddle followed (automatically or manually) by a picture answer.
Why is it special? Kids Riddles book apps encourage young readers to read the texts of the riddles, and confirm their guesses by seeing beautiful color picture answers. The illustrations were made by Slovak artist Katka Hustaty. We selected classic riddles with very descriptive answers, such as:
- What goes around the world but stays in a corner?
- What can you catch but not throw?
- The more you take, the more you leave behind. What are they?
What’s in it for me? Okenko Books will set Kids Riddles to FREE for App Friday June 11th. These apps are available on the Android Market for Android phones. To download, go to the Market on your Android phone and search in Applications for Kids Riddles.
