‘A Troop is a Group of Monkeys’ is Our Recommended Children’s App This Week

atroop‘A Troop is a Group of Monkeys’ is our Recommended Children’s App of the Week. This interactive iOS storybook app from Little Bahalia Publishing is a story about funny animal group names with silly sound effects.

The $3.99 app is the first in a trilogy about collective nouns. Here is more about it from iTunes:

Each of the animal groups—a troop of monkeys, a colony of bats—comes to life on the screen and invites young readers to enjoy interactive play while reinforcing the vocabulary words on each page. The crocodiles snap their jaws, and the lions lick their paws. What do you suppose the skunks will do? This story is tied to Common Core standards and includes information for teachers and parents on how to enhance a reader’s comprehension with reading strategies and activity ideas.
