Andrea Gardner, an elementary and middle school teacher for many years: Whether you are an educator in a school or home setting or you are a parent trying to teach your child(ren) conscious reading skills, then this needs to be your next educational app download!....
...To know that while reading Elfishki and the Giant Cake your child(ren) or students will be building their love of reading, incorporating a number of academic needs and celebrating each others differences is well worth the $2.99 download.
Nicole, 3rd grade Teacher: I will definitely be buying more of Elka Palka Productions' interactive books as they are released. I thought it was cute and once I saw all the comprehension questions and what a wide range of questions are asked, I was hooked. This is a great way for students to practice "Listen to Reading" during my Daily 5 literacy block. If only I had more iPads for my classroom!
From another Teacher: I honesty have to say I loved this product! It was broken down into sections and allowed the reader to check his/her own understanding with questions. I often do this in class myself for my students to track their understanding, comprehension, and to increase their prediction ability.
Elfishki and The Giant Cake is loaded with captivating, beautifully designed images that your kids are sure to love. 5 out of 5 stars!
It took all of two minutes for both Little Man and Little Miss to figure out how to play “Decorate the Cake” which is a game included in this App, as well! All in all, I recommend this App because it is a fun and engaging App that will not only keep your kids busy, it will assist in teaching reading skills.
This is a super cute and fun interactive book I have a 7 year old daughter and a 11 year old son with Cepral Palsey that loved this book. My daughter has to read every night for school and she gets upset that she cannot read this book every night. She likes it because it has a good fun story, the Graffics are awesome and the interactive part is "off the hook", yes my 7 year old daughter said off the hook. Where she learned that I have not a clue, it made me laugh for sure, so from a 7 year old mouth the book is OFF THE HOOK!
Landon loves this book so much that he knows what the app picture looks like and can find it anywhere on the iPad! He woke up early one morning, came out, grabbed the iPad and loaded up the book.
I would rate this a 5 out of 5 for interactive kids books! One of the best I have seen (and played with, I'm a kid at heart) in a long time!
My daughter can read but she also enjoyed when the book was narrated by a beautiful voice. I think she has read or listened to this app everyday. But the best part was the CAKE GAME (according to lil Mama)! My daughter spent some time making beautiful cakes and silly cakes. She made a cake for me and sent it by email when I was at work, that made my day! She plans to make a cake for everyone this year on their birthday.
I am so excited about this product and so will you! I is a fun interactive game and stories that the kids with...LOVE....trust me I'm not a kid and I think it is great! The bright fun colors and eye catching characters are wonderful. The animation is so much fun will keep the kids busy for hours. Make sure your batteries are charged ....lol
By the time it was finished, she was ready to do it all over again. The entire application was just phenomenal! Definitely a 5 out of 5 star rating!
I want you to know that what your company is doing is absolutely amazing!!! I had the fortune of reviewing a children's interactive book and I have fallen in love. So much so that I never shared this with a child, but enjoyed it myself.
The graphics and sounds were amazing during the “listen” part of the app. The Giant Cake game will entertain any child for a while.
Both kids zero right in on 'Elfishki and the Giant Cake' app, trust me they have a LOT of apps to choose from on the iPad! But this one is the favorite!
During a recent mommy and me meet up at my home, one of my mommy friends and her 5-year old daughter couldn’t stop playing with the (Elfishki and the Giant Cake) app, as the girl was sharing her own take on the story. The mother couldn’t believe the imagination her daughter had. And, the daughter began going around sharing her story and what she learned from this app with other kids at the meet up. This was definitely an ice breaker for new moms and kids as a group.
Awesome iPad Book!! I love the colorful layout and the interactive play of this app.This book makes reading a lot more interesting and super fun.
This interactive app book is absolutely adorable. The color, animations and detail is stunning. Very cute My daughter is 7 and really enjoyed reading this as well as playing with the interactive part of the game/book The characters are just too cute and the colors and detail is superb. This is a great book app for children, very interactive and colorful, fun and entertaining. My daughter really enjoys it.
My kids liked playing with the different pages to see what would move and make a noise! I give this interactive book a 5 out of 5.
Overall, this application is a great must have in your educational materials for your child's learning advancement. Two Thumbs Up!
Top Kids App of the Week!
Elfishki and the Giant Cake is a highly-interactive and entertaining app that features a great message for children.
Adorable app that is loaded with action and fantastic graphic and narration!
My daughter LOVED this story and how it interacted with her.
The app is loaded with colorful graphics and animated pages. Initially, my son was going to read the book, but after seeing the words told me it was too long, after a long day of school and homework, so he chose to have the narrator read to him. He loved that the pictures moved. As hyper as he can be he sat through the whole story.
Little Brandon was thrilled to try out this new interactive story and game. I was excited too to see more of the creativity of this app. I love the vibrant colors.
This is an amazing app, the colors are very vibrant and the story is so cute. The app itself had my daughter involved the whole way through, she loves it.
What I actually liked about Elfishki and The Giant Cake is that your kids can read and listen to it at the same time. Perfect for both my girls! I’m sure there’d be more updates about this ebook. I wouldn’t wanna miss any of those.
I wanted my Ipad back but she was too busy reading!
The illustrations of this app are amazing! Love the lively colors and interactive play.
5 out of 5 stars! Beautifully illustrated children's books and interactive app.
The colors are stunning. It’s a cute story and interactive the whole way through. My kids loved it.
Anyone that knows me, knows that my household is usually chaotic. My 3 year old is hyperactive to put it nicely. Elfishki and the Giant Cake was a nice way to get him to sit still and truly involved in a book. He had a blast interacting with the story and was more than will to make a cake, or ten, when we were done with the story.
There is clear passion and talent behind this group.
Your stories are not only pretty and engaging but also encouraging deeper levels of literacy.
