Swinging in the trees and putting on a show for the cheeky chimpanzees - listen to the story to know which gorilla to tickle under the arm (are they wearing a pirate hat? flippers? a bow tie?) and hear them giggle until they lose their grip.
A rollicking rhyme and beautiful illustrations combine with stunning animations on every page to make this a favorite. With a lovely surprise at the end, unexpected animations on every page and cheeky dialogue, this is sure to entertain the whole family.
“This book app is delightful. It is deeply engaging for young readers & listeners, much like Mr. Nunn's earlier apps. The interactivity will have your kids giggling along with the story as they learn basic subtraction by one. For very young kids in particular, this app is sure to please. There is also one small extra included with this title, a matching game... Recommended." - Carisa Kluver, Digital Storytime

Ratings and Reviews
My grandchildren enjoy the fun, giggly gorillas.
This app is a keeper! In the story book, there are 10 silly giggly chimps hanging from a tree. Your task is to listen to which one gets a tickle and falls from the tree. It bridges the skills between learning to target and waiting to follow specific direction. I love the fact that on any page in the story section that you can delay play until after the page is read. I feel this is very thoughtful on the developer's part as it cuts through the habitual pattern of most kids in tapping continuously and tuning out direction. The payoff is learning to wait for direction to get your reward. Direction can also be repeated as well, as there are gentle cues of highlighting the answer to help little ones. There is also a hidden toucan and flowers to be explored that also help with visual scanning. A memory game is included to extend play that is separate from the story.
Tickling gorilla fun
With the onscreen help, it was easy to find and tickle (tap) the correct gorilla that will fall off the tree on each page. But for my son, it was more fun to tickle the other gorillas before that. He taps each of them repeatedly to hear them say different things each time. It was also easy to find the hidden toucan on each page once he knows what clue to look for.
From a parent's point of view however, I wish that the counting down concept was shown more explicitly. For example, to help the child to count the number of gorrillas that are on the tree, provide an option to display the numeral in sequence as the child taps each gorilla. Then follow by describing the gorilla that is supposed to fall. Only after it has fallen, then the story should tell how many gorillas are left. Overall, it is a delightful story with rhyming words and fun animations.
