4.5 stars – Digital Storytime
4 stars - “… a delightful story about keeping true to yourself and finding ways to share your special talent. We liked the fact that a variety of actors were used to give each character it’s own unique voice; and the sound effects, music, and animations really helped to bring the story to life.” – The iMums
4 stars - “This app is great for spending time together, increasing vocabulary, and improving reading abilities.” - Famigo
Corona Labs App of the Month
Prancing, Dancing Lily is an interactive children's storybook app about an Ayrshire cow who loves to prance and dance, so she doesn't quite fit with her herd. Lily prefers stepping in time to staying in line - so she sets out to travel the globe in search of her perfect dance. Along the way she discovers new dances from Senegal to Turkey, makes new friends around the world, and causes lots of commotion. She also writes home about her funny mishaps along the way. When Lily finally finds the dance for her, she returns home and inspires her herd to step in line… a Conga line! Lily’s adventures bring joy to all the cows in the herd. In the end, Lily finally becomes the next lead bell cow.
Notable features include:
◆ Interactive children's storybook
◆ Engaging puzzles with three difficulty levels
◆ Fun, interactive animations
◆ "Read to Me" and "Read by Myself" modes
◆ Comical illustrations
◆ Tap to make Lily moo, twirl, and cause a “cowmotion”

What's New in Version 1.4.0
Lily says, "Remember - nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance."
Prancing, Dancing Lily now works more marvelously with iOS 7. We also found a few bugs running around Lily's pasture, caught them, and remoooooved them permanently.
Finally, we'd like to thank you all very much for supporting our efforts at FatRedCouch! Please send us your feedback at support@FatRedCouch.com - we'd love to hear from you.
Dancing Cow Adventure Story
Very entertaining story about Lily's search for her place in life. She never gave up, met interesting characters along the way and finally found what she was looking for. Loved the panning scenes, character voices, lively illustrations and attention to writing letters back home (a lost art). The story lends itself to geography lessons and learning about other cultures and their music.
Prancing Dancing Cow
Good, upbeat story. Charming artwork too!
