About the App:
The Fergus Ferry contains all 24 Fergus books in read aloud or read yourself formats! There’s also a great game to play where you get to drive Fergus around Seaport Harbour, do rescues, scare sharks and avoid crashes. Plus there’s an interactive harbour to explore!
There’s hours of reading and exploring fun!
We know you’ll love it, and from now until April 30, 2014 the full
app is on iPhone and iPads/99c on Android.
My Thoughts on Fergus Ferry:
This app is a lot of fun. I downloaded it for my kids. It’s easy for them to navigate and use. My four year old has no problem finding the things she wants to. There is a section for books, one for exploring the harbour, and a simple game for kids to play.
The books remind me of Thomas the Tank Engine. They have the same feel to them and are aimed at kids the same age. The books all have different themes, but center around Furgus and his duties/adventures in the Harbour. They don’t have animations, but they give the option of reading them yourself or having the narrator read them to you. The app is Australian, so the narrator has an accent (I love it!) and some of the words (like harbour) are spelled differently than they are in the US. The illustrations are the kid-friendly, colorful images you expect to see in a quality series of children’s books.
This app will be a hit with toddlers, preschoolers, and kids in the lower grades of elementary school. There are also sections for parents and teachers that talk about the different books, the themes behind them, and how they are useful at home or in the classroom.
Ultimately, I am very happy with the app and would recommend it to parents and teachers that want to give their kids/students something entertaining and educational. There are more resources online at www.fergusferry.com.
