If I could have 1 wish...

It would be nice if there was an option to read through the book without the animation/audio as well. This would help children learn to read from the book (as it was originally intended). This was my favorite book growing up, and I'm very happy that it is now available on the iPad.

Please tell me you will be updating this app to 64-bit soon. It will be terribly sad to see it no longer work after iOS 11 is released.

Ads! In a $4 kids app!?

This is a great app and my kid loves it but there's a shopping cart icon on the main menu (which is marginally acceptable) and now there's a splash ad. Totally unacceptable for a paid app., more unacceptable for a kid's app., and still more unacceptable for a CTVW app. Someone in your marketing dept. has a bit too much power (and a poor sense of propriety) if this kind of thing is getting through. Seriously who thought it would be a good idea to advertise to 2-4 year-olds. Like this.

Minus the Roku add, it's great

The app itself is great. My two year old loves reading her "book" and giggles every time she tears down the brisk wall. I do not like that the app has an advertisement for Roku when I payed $5.00 for it.
