Customer Reviews

Amazing interactive books!

So impressed with the quality of content and delivery of the entire series. I love these books as much as my son. Steam Train is his favorite ;-).

Thank you for offering them at no cost to the user!

awesome!

One of the best books/ kid apps ever. And thank you they are free! Great for my 2 yr old. All the stories are visually appealing and fun animation - but still "feels" like a book!

No sound

Seems pointless to me to offer the read to me option if there is no sound.
