Two reading levels
The story offers two levels of reading: one using simple words, for very young children and a second one with a more advanced vocabulary and a longer text.

Fun yet educational
An exclusive functionality brings an educational note to the app: with a simple tap on the screen, you can take pictures of your favorite scenes, which will be stored in the photo album. If a marine animal is visible on a shot, facts about this animal are displayed, with educative text and a real-life photo!

Audio options
The story can be read to you by native speakers, but you can deactivate this option if you want to tell it yourself. You can also disable text display, ambient sounds and music.

4 built-in languages: English, French, Spanish and Japanese.

Search for objects and sea animals
Most pages contain ambient sounds, music and interactive content.
