Being a mom taught me that young children build a richer vocabulary when parents use sophisticated words in conversation. For a child, developing vocabulary beyond its practical basics is developing their personality and confidence to interact with the world. Lars and Friends is an interactive app for pre-schoolers, designed to build their vocabulary. The app centers on Lars the Horse and his quirky friendship with different groups of animals in the form of book, puzzles and audio-visual glossary. Children (and grown-ups) will learn the humorous animal collective nouns, such as a “parliament” of owls, and “mob” of kangaroos.
