“A Sweet Story is a charming book packed with lovely illustrations, quirky animation and an assortment of tasty childhood memories. After one reading of A Sweet Story, I found my daughter staying up late, hiding the iPad under the covers to read it one more time. That might be the highest recommendation one can give.”
—Linda Simensky, Vice President of Children’s Programming at PBS
A cute story line many can relate to- a boy not wanting to eat his meal dramatically "battles" the vegetables on his plate until they have been defeated- a sweet treat is his reward. I really like how you can zoom in to each picture to watch it come alive with animation. I wish there were a narrator with highlighted words as an option, but my sons and I enjoyed this together with me reading aloud. Charming music and sound effects.
