Ratings and Reviews
Very, very good
We bought this for our little (15mth) granddaughter and she loves it to bits and just won't stop playing it! It's put together so well that you can tell that someone has put a great deal of love and effort into it. Can't recommend it highly enough. Please bring out more apps of this quality!
Lovely book but a bit annoying when downloaded as a free app, that a couple of pages into the book, you are asked to pay for basically the whole story. Bit of a hiccup when a child is listening for the first time. Would have been better to make this a paid for app in the first place.
Wonderful book otherwise.
Beautifully illustrated and designed with fantastic interactivity. Plenty of things happen to support the story when little fingers tap all over the screen!
It is quite a long read, especially when you start playing the songs. The story is also quite sophisticated. Be prepared for really young children to get bored before the end of the story.
Well worth the money and I am expecting some repeat use of this app!
Well worth the money however.
