There are plenty of children’s books available on the App Store, and the best part is that it seems like there’s a book to teach kids on almost every subject.

Miniwalla is an incredible free book for iOS that takes kids on an animal-filled adventure while teaching them important life lessons along the way.

Concept and Functionality:

Miniwalla, developed by Siu lui shirley Choi, is an adorable story about a boy named Henry and his parent’s wildlife refuge on the island of Java.

Like most children his age, Henry goes on adventures and tends to get into a little bit of trouble. Luckily his animal friends are there to help them and teach important life lessons like responsibility and teamwork.

Unlike most books that are available on the App Store, Miniwalla is fairly hands-off. What this means is that you won’t be manually turning pages; the book practically reads itself.

This is a nice change from books that are highly interactive because it allows kids and parents to sit back and experience the story of Henry and his friends.

What really struck me the most about Miniwalla is the amount of detail that has gone into illustrations, music, and storyline. Not only is this virtual book fun to look at, but the story is actually incredibly intriguing and fun to read.

Perhaps the best thing about Miniwalla is that it includes a total of six different chapters for kids to read. Originally I figured that additional chapters would be unlocked via in-app purchase, but I was wrong; every chapter is completely free.

If you’re a parent who is trying to teach a child about the importance of music, you’ll be happy to know that Miniwalla was created by a professional composer. A fantastic score and original songs makes this app soar above others like it.


Miniwalla is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There are no in-app purchases or ads.

Without a doubt, Miniwalla is definitely one of the best books I’ve ever reviewed.

Not only is it beautifully illustrated, but the story is enough to get parents and kids interested in Henry and his animal friends.

I can’t recommend it enough, and I wholeheartedly believe that this is an essential addition to every parent’s digital library.
