This is an enormously fun app with lots and lots of possibilities for play (and within that early literacy skills!). Children can follow an alpaca around a map of Australia to complete games and challenges. These challenges have so many opportunities to support children with their listening and attention, speaking and understanding skills. Options include matching games, helping pacca alpaca choose food for the barbecue (great chance to talk about what we eat/what goes on the BBQ), finding shapes and painting aboriginal art. There are also loads of opportunities for adults to get involved with playing together, explaining why baby turtles need to go back to the sea, what is in Australia and many more options.
