Tryger Tales – New Adventures on the High Road.™
Your kids will love the brand new world of Tryger Tales and its stories about a young cat whose comical misadventures always take him where the high road goes. Where’s that? It’s where people do the right thing, help others, and act out of kindness, tolerance and respect. And, it’s where children learn about the dozens of virtues that can help make our own world a better place.
Tryger Tales is a free book app for iPad and iPad mini, and comes with a free story called “Tryger’s World!”
We know it’s a big hurdle to help kids learn good behavior and entertain them at the same time, but Tryger and all his friends really do jump that high!
Here’s what you need to know:
Beyond the free “Tryger’s World” that comes with the app, our first stories are available as in-app purchases now, with many more in the works. Those first stories are “Tryger’s Big Goof,” “How Tryger Got His Name” and “Tryger’s Good Bad Day” — and they are truly fun!
Everybody likes Tryger. He’s cool, he can run fast and jump high, and he has a big heart. But just like real life, he hits a bump in the road once and awhile. That’s when has to choose which way to go. Of course, Tryger doesn’t usually make the right choice at first. But in the end, he always finds The Good Way to Go. So, Tryger Tales are stories making good choices, told in an engaging and captivating way. Every Tryger Tale is an adventure, after all.
Narrated by Tryger’s loveable and wise Grandpa, each story is a multisensory experience, with sound, motion and highlighted text designed to enhance rather than distract from the words and story theme.
Your children can choose to be read to by Grandpa or read to themselves. Plus, you can customize each book by recording your own voice reading the words, and even make an intro video for your child.
Oh, and the cool thing about Grandpa? He really understands what it’s like growing up, and knows all kinds of good stuff about life. Plus Tryger’s family and friends are truly an interesting bunch — from Tryger’s spunky little sis Nay-Nay to big sis Jenwa, best friend Pine, Mom, Dad and more to come.
The guided reading stories help kids learn reading fundamentals such as word recognition, pronunciation and cognition.
