Review:

Patrick George's popular storybook, Animal Rescue, now has its own eBook. The app simulates the physical storybook in which animals are printed on transparent pages so that when a child first opens the book, the animals are being mistreated; but, a turn of the transparent page rescues the animals and puts them back in their natural habitats. For example, at first glance, an elephant is being exploited at the circus, but with the swipe/flip of the page, the user puts the elephant back in its natural environment. Or, a tiger-skin rug, returns to life as a smiling tiger hanging from a tree. There are even examples such as fur coats and alligator shoes that allow children to put animals back in their natural homes.

The message is clear: animals belong in their natural habitats. The book gets its message across in a simple, wordless, and effective way that puts power in the hands of the readers.
