ABOUT COLLINS BIG CAT:
This popular reading series is used and trusted by over 9000 UK primary schools, as well as English-speaking schools all over the world. Now available on the App Store for the first time, we’ve brought the quality that teachers, parents and children have come to expect to our digital versions of the books.
This is a great story book, as are all the Colin's Big Cat apps. This story features a predictable pattern to encourage early readers. The pictures are great, and it doesn't have too much animation. Often in kids' storybook apps there are too many interactive elements that detract from the actual reading. This app has just enough to keep a toddler engaged, but still focused on the story. My girls read this over and over again.
Amazing interactive series
So impressed with the quality of content and delivery of the entire series. I love these books as much as my son. What a great way to introduce kids to a socially responsible concept like recycling!
Love it! Although Steam Train is my son's favorite ;-).
Thank you for offering them at no cost to the user!
I love this app & the students do too! Very interactive--the students love to listen to their own version and then share it with others.
