Ratings and Reviews
This book features excellent art and beautiful transitions between "pages." The touch and swipe interactions are simple and fun for kids. If I were to make any recommendations, it would be some type of visual cues for what objects can be interacted with. Otherwise this book is perfect and easily worth $2 or $3. Will be looking for others from this publisher.
I knew my 8 year old daughter would adore this app, but my 5 yo autistic son has played and played it. The extras are fun, and he especially loves the song and wants to dance with me! The transitions between scenes and pages are phenomenal and entertaining in themselves. The interaction is just right. Love this one!!
The transitions are fabulous!
But, I really wish there were more to interact with in the book. It is a feature that I have come to expect from children's books on iOS and there are so many opportunities for it in this one. I do love being able to use the magic wand to transform Cinderella though!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
