The first digital e-book / game from the RedRover Readers program! The Restricted Adventures of Raja will teach children important life skills while being immersed in a wonderful story of courage, compassion and empathy. *** It’s the year 2050. Earth has become a dreadful place that lacks kindness and is full of animals with no homes and very angry and lonely people. Raja, a very special warrior from another world, has been sent on a Warrior Mission when he suddenly becomes compelled to instead help a very lonely Earth boy. The only problem is that when Raja arrives on Earth he suddenly discovers that he has become a domestic Earth cat and is afraid! The Restricted Adventures of Raja is the first in a series of stories that follow the journey of this warrior. To complete his mission, Raja must make decisions based on observing the behavior and emotions of others. By reading along and playing the Animal Watch game, readers will begin learning how they can understand and respond to animals based on their behaviors. The Restricted Adventures of Raja is part of the RedRover Readers Program and was written with the goal of teaching children empathy and kindness by understanding the emotions of cats and dogs, as well as people. The message of this story fits seamlessly into any teaching program and aligns to the U.S. Common Core standards. Learning how to interact with dogs or cats is a fun way to help children develop empathy and emotional understanding. RedRover is a national non-profit with a four-star Charity Navigator rating.

What's New in Version 1.2
We found a bug on certain screens where the inventory would not show everything. The bug has been gently released in the wild.
Excellent (and fun!) way for kids to learn and grow
I love this idea - use technology, reading and connection with animals to help kids learn about empathy and compassion. The app is fun and easy to use. Great graphic art and a game that teaches about animal behavior. Empathy is crucial to overall wellbeing and benefits both humans and animals, so I see this app as a win-win!
This e-book is great! Very fun and engaging to read, while teaching kids valuable lessons about empathy and how to better understand animals. The font was a little small and hard to read, but not a big deal. The story itself is really clever and the game was fun, too. Definitely worth checking out!
Cool app and concept!
I like the story. Very creative concept that kids will love. Game teaches animal body movements and helping others. Worth it!
