You explore island areas, collecting letters for coins that unlock more areas. There are 42 animals to save and then ride to new areas. There's also egg collecting side missions to help the Kiwi. You gain coins by cleaning up litter and goop depositing them with animals that balloon-up with coins like a piggy bank. This starts the journey of learning about saving which extends to the fundamentals of using a bank account, paying taxes and earning interest.
If Animal Crossing is a capitalism simulator, then Island Saver is its banking based cousin. Games like this are good at helping teach children about the value of money.
