PatrickGeorge create clever, bright and fun interactive books. I have raved about their books before and now I have something new to shout about. They have produced their first app – Animal Rescue – and I have a promo code to give away so the lucky winner can download the app for free.
Animal Rescue is based on the book of the same name, released in 2015. The book uses PatrickGeorge’s trademark transparent pages to allow you to interact with the book and become an animal rescue hero. Each page shows an animal that needs rescuing and the transparent sheet allows the reader to turn back time and rescue them. Some are a simple placement, like the bear:
There are no words in the book, or the new app version, allowing the reader to choose the words that are age appropriate. Animal Rescue is a fantastic introduction to animal welfare and a great springboard for discussion.
The Animal Rescue app uses the same transparent sheet concept but animates the whole process. The pictures come to life and the background sounds make the animals’ environments even more realistic. By swiping your finger across the screen you can turn the transparent sheet and rescue the animal, collecting a cheer and an app sticker as you do so.
The app even has extra animals to rescue, including one that is particularly close to my heart!
PatrickGeorge have a real talent for strong design and equally strong messages. This app is bold, bright, stylish and smooth to use. It’s a great app for classrooms to use as a discussion starter.
To win a promo code to download the app for free, head over to twitter and retweet the competition tweet.
The app is available now through the App Store. You can get your copy of the book here.
Thanks to PatrickGeorge for providing the promo code for this giveaway.
