“A Fun Take on Story Book Apps” from the iPhone Mom

“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.  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 – a modern spin on “choose-your-own-adventure” stories of the past.”

“Worth the Wait” – AppAble Reviews Treasure Kai and the Seven Cities of Gold

Review App Able Worth the Wait   AppAble Reviews Treasure Kai and the Seven Cities of Gold

Treasure Kai and the Lost Gold of Shark Island 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. I eagerly awaited the release of Treasure kai 2 and I can tell you it was worth the wait. Treasure Kai and the Seven Cities of Gold is every bit as engaging as it’s predecessor.

Melissa Northway header for review Fantastic and You are Immediately Swept into the Adventure   Melissa Northway Reviews...

“We are big fans of Treasure Kai and the Lost Gold of Shark Island in this household as my six year old constantly goes back to this fun app!  Recently, Karen Robinson released part two in the Treasure Kai series called Treasure Kai and the Seven Cities of Gold.  As with the first app, you feel that you are part of an adventure and get really engrossed in the story and treasure hunting.  The story is fantastic and you are immediately swept into the adventure with Kai and his best friend, Kate.”

The iMums The iMums Review Treasure Kai and the Seven Cities of Gold and Vote it Even Better than the Original!

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 children’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 is a sequel that doesn’t disappoint, my three children give it an enthusiastic thumbs up and vote it even better than the original.
