Big City Animals promotes children’s literacy through a unique approach to interactive storytelling, utilizing city-centric characters that take kids on educational travel adventures.
Each storybook is built around a city’s special highlights. The main character is a local “City Ambassador” (e.g. Boston Bernie the cat) who officially leads them throughout the city while on some type of quest; with no in-app purchasing or 3rd-party advertising.
“Boston Bernie Snaps the City” is the first in a series of educational storybook apps. Boston Bernie will take your child on a tour of Boston while on a quest to take the best photos for his school project.
He meanders through Fenway Park, Franklin Park Zoo, the Children’s Museum, Boston Tea Party Ship, and Bunker Hill Monument. “Boston Bernie Snaps the City” can be purchased for the iPad on iTunes and for the Kindle on Amazon’s app store.
Big City Animals was founded in 2014 by Lisa Chipetine, a technology consultant.
