Joys of music, travel and animals
We love reading this beautifully illustrated ibook to our baby. Every page has beautiful little details to point to and baby loves making the characters move, dance and play music. All pages have some interaction so there is something for kids of many ages. The text and illustrations provide a lovely blend of learning about music, travel, animals, friendship and pursuing your dreams!
