A delightful interactive book from the start , where it asks for a photo of the owner of the book ( how does it do that) very clever.
My 5 year old grandson and 13 years granddaughter ( a bit too old for this) both loved it.
The rhyming verses and interactive sounds are educational but fun, .
The games at the end of the book are fun and the length of the story is just right, just enough to stop the child from getting bored, and once read you just want to start from the beginning again.
Appropriately educational and entertaining for emerging readers
It's the simpicity of this app that I find so appealing. Its content and structure are perfect for for the target audience, with an appropriate level of interactivity that retains attention to the charming story being introduced and clearly narrated. Verse, when employed well, adds to the enjoyment of the text, which is the case here. This is further supported by the rhythmic chiming of a clock that also adds to the educational aspects employed. The additional game sits at the appropriate grade level. Highly recommended.
Great app for kids
Really lovely story with simple interactions that even younger children (like mine) can do and enjoy. The app is easy to use and the ‘extras’ make it something that your children can come back to again and again.
