Almost a Perfect Teaching Tool
I teach students with disabilities and they love this app. Currently, we're finishing up the Picture Book version. While I've been able to address many standards, the tactile component of this app allows some of my students a direct and meaningful way to participate. I would suggest that Random House provide a setting that slows down the narrator's reading speed. Another good addition would be that when the user clicks on a word the narrator reads just that word. Then it would be a perfect app! Thanks Random House! Keep them coming!
I would give this app 5 stars but customer support 0. I have sent several emails about it crashing. I asked for help or the status on it. I did not receive one response back saying anything. We are working on it would have been enough for me. I understand things can go wrong and I am willing to wait. Please respond to your customers. It is common courtesy.
Awesome interactive images!
The images, narration, plus the the background music help immerse you into the story. I felt like a kid again.
