From the Graded Readers series, one of the most successful series of HUB Editorial, Uncle Jack and the Meerkats has now become an interactive book.
Six baby meerkats sad and far from home! Uncle Jack and the children come to the rescue! When Uncle Jack and the children find some homesick baby meerkats they decide to take them home to the Kalahari Desert. Getting there is easy in Uncle Jack’s balloon.
In this version the meerkats, the children and Uncle Jack come to life, allowing children to interact with objects, hear the roar of lions, play with the ball, start the lorry, sing the karaoke music among many other movements and sounds.
You can listen to the narrated story or just read it like in a regular printed book.
The desert is a dangerous place. Can Uncle Jack keep the meerkats safe?
