Care for Our World Delivers Timely Environmental Message to Kids
Sunbreak Games nurtures the next generation of environmentalists with an interactive children’s book for iPad
SEATTLE (March 1, 2017) — Sunbreak Games is proud to announce the release of Care for Our World for iPad, an interactive children’s book app based on the award-winning illustrated title of the same name by Seattle-based publisher Compendium. Featured by Apple and winner of a Tech with Kids’ coveted Best Pick App Award, Care for Our World is one of the few environmental children’s apps on the market, and offers kids a timely reminder of the responsibility every generation shares: to nurture and respect life in all its many forms.

The app takes kids on a charming tour of habitats from every corner of the world, naming the many plants and animals that we share the planet with. Originally written by Karen Robbins and illustrated by Alexandra Ball, Care for Our World expands on the physical book, offering new content and creative activities to its interactive edition. In addition to the story, children can now create their own custom habitats by choosing animals and backgrounds, color select pages from the book, and learn more with facts, sounds, and photos in the included Animal Encyclopedia.
This is the second product by Sunbreak Games, an independent game development studio focused on creating family-friendly games and interactive books with a positive impact on the world. Founder and Creative Director Jason Behr is a veteran in the gaming industry, working on award-winning games such as the Metroid Prime series and Halo 4. In 2012 he left the AAA career path to start Sunbreak Games. Their first game Buddy & Me, a beautifully illustrated “endless runner” game that explores the friendship between a child and their imaginary friend, has won the hearts of families and raised money for charities World Land Trust and Extra Life. “Care for Our World perfectly captures Sunbreak’s mission, crafting heartwarming, quality entertainment that also creates opportunities for players to reflect on meaningful real-world topics where they can make a positive difference.” says Behr. “There’s never been a more important time for kids and parents to explore our close relationship to the natural world.”
Care for Our World ($2.99) is recommended for children ages 3-8 and is available for sale worldwide at the iTunes Store: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/care-for-our-world/id1097364668?ls=1&mt=8.
