“One neat thing about this storybook app is that it focuses on reading comprehension as kids must use their memory to help Treasure Kai get home. Â And, unlike many other storybook apps, in Treasure Kai and the Seven Cities of Gold kids can experience the story in a completely different way each time â€“ a modern spin on â€śchoose-your-own-adventureâ€ť stories of the past.”
“Treasure Kai and the Lost Gold of Shark IslandÂ was one of the very first apps I ever purchased. It was an instant hit with all of my children and is still one of my favourite apps.Â I eagerly awaited the release ofÂ Treasure kai 2Â and I can tell you it was worth the wait.Â Treasure Kai and the Seven Cities of GoldÂ is every bit as engaging as it’s predecessor.
“We are big fans ofÂ Treasure Kai and the Lost Gold of Shark IslandÂ in this household as my six year old constantly goes back to thisÂ fun app!Â Recently, Karen Robinson released part two in the Treasure Kai series calledÂ Treasure Kai and the Seven Cities of Gold.Â As with the first app, you feel that you are part of an adventure and get really engrossed in the story and treasure hunting.Â The story is fantastic and you are immediately swept into the adventure with Kai and his best friend, Kate.”

We are beyond excited to have received a 5-star review from Digital Storytime for Treasure Kai and the Seven Cities of Gold. “Full of exceptional interactivity that is both story-related and fun, this title surpasses the first book in a way that is rare for a series.”
Overall, we really enjoyed this book, it is very true to the original Treasure Kai story, but at the same time is different enough to keep my childrenâ€™s attention. We loved the feeling of adventure in the book, and the fact that you learned a little history at the same time. The treasure chests and keys are a great way to keep the children involved in the story and to make it a fresh experience every time. We liked that the keys were all different and that you need to collect all seven keys to complete the story. It isÂ a sequel that doesnâ€™t disappoint, my three children give it an enthusiastic thumbs up and vote it even better than the original.
