This book/app is a great addition to any children's apps or stories that you might have for your Apple device. It tells an awesome story and it is fun for all children including adults. Everyone in my family and extended family have enjoyed reading the story may times over. If you like children's stories and apps to entertain your children or grandchildren, this would be one to download for sure and include in your app library.
wonderful story, great app
If you have a small child, you can't go wrong with this app. The content is strong and the implementation is great.
In my opinion, Douglas the bear is the Chuck Norris of Caring.
It's nice to see a child pick up non-violent behavior so easily.
Please make more apps like this one.
Our kids (6 and 3), who love books, were not impressed by this story. It is not very "interactive" and the only game included is tick-tack-toe. Really. Not even a matching game, as my daughter noted.
