After decades of parents and children singing the classic nursery rhyme, those 5 Little Monkeys are still jumping on the bed! Kid's Academy Company is bringing the story to life with the immediate launch of 5 Little Monkeys on iOS. Now parents and children can sing along while interacting with the rambunctious primates on their iPhones, iPads and iPods. The app aims to help parents teach counting and language skills to kids while sharing the beloved nursery rhyme.
Through beautiful graphics featuring adorable animals, 5 Little Monkeys turns counting and language development into a fun-filled sing-a-long for young children. The repetitious quality of the nursery rhyme helps kids develop vital cognitive skills including: memorization, reasoning and comprehension. Research has shown that children who learn nursery rhymes in their developmental years are likely to be better readers as they mature.
The repetition of 5 Little Monkeys helps teach kids important reading comprehension skills such as pace and voice inflection. When a child understands the context of how words are used, they are likely to make those words a part of their everyday vocabulary. Even the simple action of singing along can aid the physical development of a child, as well. Using mouth and tongue muscles regularly to form rhymes helps with pronunciation, and other movement involved in the rhyme helps children develop coordination. Children who sing and dance along with the 5 Little Monkeys will not only be using their brain, they'll be getting some fun exercise, too.
"When children act out nursery rhyme stories like 5 Little Monkeys, they learn to imagine, create and express in a fun and imaginative way," says Alexander Shingel, CTO of Kid's Academy Company. "Nursery rhymes form the foundation for children to understand basic emotions and feelings of themselves and others. The 5 Little Monkeys app emphasizes humor while teaching valuable lessons about following rules."
