Readers meet a variety of weather patterns, animals and instruments that entertain and delight its 2-5 year old audience. Crafted with touch screens in mind, this story delivers a sensory experience that is deeply engaging, entertaining and educational for early readers.
The Gorilla Band series represents a new breed of interactive book that is built in Unity3D and takes place in a completely three-dimensional environment. It's an exemplar of where digital publishing for children is heading, into immersive and sensory reading experiences that unfold through interaction and are steeped in age-appropriate educational benefits.
Graham Nunn, Creative Director for Wasabi says, "At its heart Make A Song is a memorable story that focuses on the beauty and value of nature in our distracted and tech obsessed world. Through the vehicle of music, children are encouraged to be more observant of their surroundings and find the music that envelops them every day. It's a heartwarming message and a whole lot of fun!"
