What's New in Version 1.2
minor bug fixes;
Good for young reader
Getting young readers to persist through difficult reading is a challenge. Just enough interaction to help continue through the story without making it a video game. The story is still literary (and not too long), but the music and light interaction helps a youth reader to navigate through a selection that has not been watered down for their benefit.
My students loved reading the stories and wanted more time in class. I am teaching a 6th grade mystery literature class and found these stories to fit right in to our STEAM focus. The company, Gutenbergz, is very supportive and I will look for more apps by them.
This was a very nice collection. The music was great and the pictures were charming. However, I didn't give it a higher rating because many of the pictures were repetitive and didn't add much to the stories. I would definitely recommend this book though, because its a wonderful introduction to one of the worlds great fictional characters.
