Viewpoints: The Blue Jackal and the Lion

By KidsAndBeyond, LLC.

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The Blue Jackal has become the new king of the forest! Everything seems so peaceful and all the animals are so much happier. Maybe--but not if you're the lion, the old king!

KidsAndBeyond presents the first story in its Viewpoints series: an adaptation of the classic Indian folk tale "The Blue Jackal." The story of the lonely yet clever Jackal who fools the forest animals into crowning him their king is revamped to give readers the story not only from the jackal's point of view, but from the hurt and confused lion's as well!

Beautifully illustrated with narration, video, and interactivity, "Viewpoints: The Blue Jackal and the Lion" allows users to explore multiple perspectives of the same story in a fun, engaging, and age-appropriate manner. Download the app to immerse yourself in this exciting tale!

* interactivity on multiple screens for readers to discover
* options to navigate the story with/out narration and with/out text
* flashing arrows to guide users through the pages of the story
* thoughtful questions posed by the narrator throughout the story
* discussion questions posed by the characters throughout and at the end of each narrative
