"Not only do children get to hear the story of Dentist Bird, but they also get to help cure crocodile’s tooth ache by playing in-story games! A teacher’s guide and parent guide are also available along with this app for educational connections! Library usage: This is another app that I would include on an apps booklist. It could also be great to include in a Día program that focuses on West Africa OR a folktale program that shares folktales from around the world."

"I really like that this app introduces kids to another culture and environment, and encourages compassion in a fun interactive way. It's geared to kids in Kindergarten to grade 3, and my 5 year old nephew really enjoyed it. I was a little surprised that Elle, 12, also enjoyed it! I asked her to try it and give me her opinion and she absolutely recommends it for younger kids. "
