By Graeme Base
The Waterhole is a children’s book written and illustrated by Graeme Base. The illustrations are very colorful and encourage the reader to look closer to see all of the wildlife. Readers have an opportunity to count the animals, observe changes in nature when a drought occurs and then again when the rains come, and learn more about where the wildlife may live.
The Waterhole has been developed as an app. Features of this app include the reading of the book by Base, a hidden animal search, an animatch matching game, and leap frog. Some of these features are appropriate for young children while some of the features will be of more interest to older children.
This app is available for $2.99 and is compatible with the iPad.
