Being Benny

My boys really enjoy this app. The older can read to the younger ones. The little ones like that it has a read to me option.
It is such a fun story!

My son loves Benny


My 4yo son with Autism absolutely loves to listen to "Being Benny". He giggles and giggles as he listens to the story. Very simple, yet well made.
