Great except for music
This is basically the Ladybug Girl book (which my 2.5 yr old son loves). You can either choose to have somebody read it as voice over or to do the reading yourself. Unfortunately, there is music playing the whole time even if you choose to read yourself. I am sure it would t bother everybody and if you are reading it yourself, you can turn down your own volume, but the app should provide a with or without music setting. Seems like that would be simple to do and is pretty common to see.
We're it not for the music, I would give it 4 or 5 stars.
Downloaded this app for use at school with my first graders. Cute app, good to have a digital copy of the book for the kids to read/listen to but the activity is a big disappointment. Even the girls weren't really excited about trying on the different costumes more than once. I also wasn't able to send any postcards. Not what I expected and not the best value for the money. Gave it three stars because I did end up with a copy of the book but feel that it was a very poor value : (
Postcard app function excellent
The ability to customize the ladybug girl character in different outfits, accessories and background scenes is a fantastic add on. With the click of a button the reader can send their custom postcard (via email) to anyone they want. Great feature. Kids will keep coming back for more.
