★Made for iPad! And works beautifully on the iPod Touch and iPhone devices too.
★The "interactive" part comes in the form of games, activities, hidden Easter eggs, and the like. Gorgeous artwork, read-along text, and a reasonable price tag...What's not to like?
★The classic "Jack and the Beanstalk" gets a terrific iPad makeover.
★I was really impressed with Jack and the Beanstalk Children’s Interactive Storybook. It takes full advantage of the iPad’s size and looks great. The addition of the hidden activities within the story make it a fun app that my son really enjoyed

Experience Jack and the Beanstalk like never before in this wonderfully illustrated storybook, featuring over 30 pages of interactivity which your child will enjoy. This timeless tale comes alive with audio narration, read-along text, and interactive games and features. Each page contains a hidden surprise! Come and dive into the pages of Jack and the Beanstalk and join Jack in his adventure to defeat the giant!
SPOILER WARNING - Don't read this next section if you want to discover all the great surprises in this app on your own!
All 32 pages are interactive, but here are some highlights you won't want to miss.
Tilt the application to watch the sun move. Move the sun with your finger below the mountains and observe day turn to night. Touch the house to watch and hear the chimney puff.
Touch the beans to play the memory matching game.
Magically finger-paint the black -and-white page. When most of the image has been painted, stars will burst with enchanting sounds, and reveal an amazingly vivid image. When the page is in color, touch the lake to play a popup game. Shake the device to either finish the painting or to restart painting again.
Touch Jack to get him to sing. It may take a few times...he's shy!
The Giant is high on the beanstalk. Tilt the device and watch the Giant sway. The Giant will complain when you shake the device - he's afraid of heights.

Jack and the bean stalk
My 3 1/2 yo grandson squealed with delight at the surprise that repeatedly popped up on each page. I had to read it again and again 3 times in succession and he wanted more! Very interactive
Good with one exception
My 2 year old really enjoys this app. The one thing I'd change is the annoying chick in the egg that appears unexpectedly when you touch the screen. It really gets on my nerves and detracts from the story.
Love it but...
Okay, this is a good app but they killed it with a very annoying, loud and obtrusive Easter egg. I searched the program and there is no way to disable it.
If they fix this I'll come back and edit my review accordingly. Right now, as it is, I hate it.
