Peekaboo Forest is a beautiful discovery and narrative app based around the illustrations of Charley Harper. Children explore various forest scenes and discover new animals along the way.

It’s a quieter app—it’s not flashy or fast-paced—but it’s engaging enough for a small child to stay interested for more than a couple minutes. I also love that it teaches animal sounds and names along the way.

You can buy it here for iPhone and iPad only.

P.S. — We feature favorite apps for children regularly. You can see what we’ve featured so far here.

I thought this app was okay. It tended to be glitchy (though those probably got fixed with updates). My daughter and I liked Peekaboo Barn better.

Sorry it was glitchy for you, Angel. I didn’t have any trouble. I didn’t realize there was a Peekaboo Barn version—thanks for the tip!

We like this one–as well as Peekaboo Barn and Peekaboo Fridge.

Thanks for the recommendation! We bought this one today and love it already.
