“A Sweet Story is a charming book packed with lovely illustrations, quirky animation and an assortment of tasty childhood memories. After one reading of A Sweet Story, I found my daughter staying up late, hiding the iPad under the covers to read it one more time. That might be the highest recommendation one can give.”
—Linda Simensky, Vice President of Children’s Programming at PBS
My kids love it, and they come back to it for the story - it's totally like story time with their other books, but with play. Feels like a pop-up book in level of engagement, so they're involved with me and the book and the story. Warm fuzzy!
With so many iPad storybook experiences just moving older stories to a new device, this one has real originality. The artwork looks hand-painted, and the story is one that almost any child can relate to. The things you can do inside Oliver's imagination take some experimenting to find, which makes repeat readings pay off that much more.
The real win for this storybook is the quality of the art and the simple but rewarding ways a child can interact with the images. It's not a game or an old story in a new device, it's a new story for a new kind of storytelling.
A funny story that kids can relate to when it comes to having to eat their vegetables before they get their desert. Read it three times with my kids the first night. They loved it.
