Ratings and Reviews

Reading + Activities!


My daughter was already a big fan of the My Little Pony apps, but loved the fact that this one added in a pony dress up activity! She has been working hard on her reading all summer and these read along books are great for keeping her interest. I think she will be ahead of the game when she starts school on Wednesday - fingers, um, hooves crossed!

Perfect for my 4yo!


My four-year-old is just getting to be really interested in reading, which please me to no end! She also tends to gravitate towards horses, ponies and unicorns so this is right up her alley.

She loves the story and has been very engaged which is nice for a change! I love the cute take on "Manehattan"! It's a win!

Super Cute!

My son and daughter read this together. The graphics are fantastic, and it was longer than expected. The dress-up feature at the end was unexpected, and very cute!
