Waste of space
The illustrations are cute but the vocabulary is very inappropriate for preschoolers. All of the sentences are long and complex. My grandson is really advanced but he would never understand this. By the time he can understand, he'll want punctuation. I can't afford to waste the space on my iPad. This one is deleted.
Love the app! The pictures and sounds are very entertaining. I especially like the interactive facts about the animals on each page. Great for the little ones and even kids a little older would enjoy the games and learning about the animals.
