"This is a fantastic app. It's informative, imaginative and keeps the kids amused with both the information about trees and also the drawing section....." (UK iTunes Store)
"This app is brilliant, since downloading it I have spent ages on the drawing page posting my trees to my facebook page! I'm also looking forward to the build your own tree house page in the update. Brilliant value for money too." (UK iTunes Store)
Sit back and enjoy the tale, as well as learning about just how amazing trees are.
“James Pendlebury says that diggers are best, but he always says stupid things that are wrong. Just last Tuesday, he said that Jenny Lemmon said that squirrels are a type of cat.
They are not.”

Wonderful leafy app!
This is a fantastic app. It's informative, imaginative and keeps the kids amused with both the information about trees and also the drawing section. We spent quite a long time drawing weird and wonderful trees of our own!
I know some people have said that this is not as good as other apps but I disagree. The educational aspect of this app is far better than some shiny drawings of flying books that you can barely interact with. But hey, if that's what you're into, great.
I am of the firm belief that this app will continue to grow and expand with the promised updates and the members of my family, kids as well as me, can't wait!
A tad boring
Unfortunately I showed this to my 6 year old god-daughter right after we'd sat and read Mr Morris Lessmore, and we found Trees Are Best boring in comparison. The interaction is linear and not very interesting, and calling it "fully interactive" is a bit of an overstatement. A few of the screens display too much information using small text, such as the "how to climb a tree" page. We only got a few more pages in before my god-daughter lost interest.
That said, this format of interactive, educational story book has massive potential, and it's great to see things like this starting to appear. I'm genuinely excited about the potential of this format. The upcoming updates on your website sound great, and I'll certainly keep an eye out for more apps like this from yourselves in the future.
This app is brilliant, since downloading it I have spent ages on the drawing page posting my trees to my facebook page! I'm also looking forward to the build your own tree house page in the update. Brilliant value for money too.
