Turning pages much more difficult
I think you got rid of the green arrow to make it easier for children, but now it's more difficult because the app doesn't respond right away so the kids keep trying which either results in the app freezing or the pages turning several ahead depending on how many times the kid has tapped the screen...
Ok story, too short for the price
When I read the description, I thought it was for multiple books about Elmo and a puppy. I was disappointed thar $2 only paid for one short story. My kids listened to it a few times and lost interest.
Please fix!! Visuals gone in book!!
The new coloring book option my son loves.
However, since the update when you go to do the book, all you see is a black screen, the home button, and the words scrolling across the bottom on my Ipod touch. I can't believe this got missed. 3 year olds aren't into audiobooks so much.
5 stars after it gets fixed.
