Customer Reviews

Great hide and seek story

Loved this app the first time I read it with my grandson, the updates are great and makes it educational. He loves the fun facts about ferrets & I like the reading prompts. Happy I didn't pass on this app after reading the review about the reviewer who had crashes. Maybe it was being played on the wrong device or the issue was fixed because it worked perfectly in the iPad 3

Show and Tell Escapades

This is a very fun read with real life issues kids can relate to. Engaging interactions and humorous animation add to the story.

Martin finds there are consequences when he
ignores his responsibility with a pet. His friends pitch in and help him resolve the dilemma. Teachers will find the Common Core State Standards curriculum helpful for extending ideas from the story to a deeper learning experience.

Cute animated story

This story was perfect for my son who desperately wants a pet ferret. Following along and interacting with the cheeky ferret "Grendel" was both fun and educational for him. He also liked reading about the fun ferret facts at the end of the story.
