Customer Reviews


Although this interpretation of the book isn't bad, sloppy or inaccurate, as far as I can tell, it's just reading out loud with just a little animation. At $5, it doesn't compare to other children's book apps that I have bought that do something new with the medium. Frankly, I can read the story to my daughter myself; I look to the iPad to provide stimulation that I can't. Also, the narrator was annoying, especially because they went for some sort of British accent to make it reminiscent of the TV movie and all it does it fall short of that resonance.

I love It!!!

I love this app...I got it last year, recorded me reading the book and then sent it to my daughter in Texas so that Grammy (I) was able to read it to my grand is awesome and they love that Grammy is reading it to them :)

How the Grinch stole Christmas

This is a childhood favorite. And when I read it to Max, oh how he loved it so.
This was the first for him, you know!
Oh how he loved the book. Now I think we'll take a second look!!
