Instructions Included

I just wanted to address the user who reported that this book app was not very intuitive: There is a lot to this book app, including a wonderful rhyming story, a treasure hunt, and moveable items, sounds and actions on each and every page. There is a lot to do, and some is not immediately apparent, but the book app DOES include a set of instructions that explain the navigation, how to use the book app, and how to access a “cheat” overlay that shows all the hot spots in the app for those having trouble finding items to tap. Otherwise; it is a lot of fun to explore as you read the story; enjoy the surprises, and look for hidden treasure… it’s part of the fun!

Great Pirate story

This is a wonderful rhyming story that kids will play over & over. The illustrations are cute and there is lots of interaction that keeps my son busy. Thumbs up from a mom who highly recommends this book.

Going on a Treasure Hunt

Fun rhyming book--when boy meets pirates. Keep a list of answers to the clues for a chance to do more fun stuff with the theme. The link to the website has lots of activities related to the book. Argh!!!
