Fun app for kiddos! but needs some work

Me and my babies had a really fun time with this app, however it seems like it needs a bit more development. I had a hard time figuring it out (maybe there needs to be more directions?). Also, the hippo icon wouldn’t scan on some pages and I had to start the book over twice just to make the right app show up. Overall I think it’s a wonderful idea and very fun - I can’t wait to see different books and more development on the app!

Really cool interactive app with books!

I bought this book not knowing about the interactive application until I got home. We ended up downloading the app and it is really neat and cool! Not only do the kids get a book but the interactive part makes the book come to life! I cannot wait until my 1 year old gets a little older to appreciate the app much more!

Really cool idea!

Little red riding hood

Nice presentation of classic tale. I was a tutor in early intervention reading, I like the interaction in this book to help children with retention of story and interest in book. I would recommend this book for all ages but I think 3 and up will get the most from the interactive part. A fun way to introduce new technologies and still retain classic hands on books.
