So much fun!
I just wanted to say how much I enjoy these interactive storybooks! They were more exciting, fun, interactive, and surprising than I expected. Objects that would normally just be in the background like trees, the sun, doors, windows, and houses totally surprised me when I clicked on them. They all actually came to life with fun personified animations, sound effects, and music. So fun trying to figure out all the things that happen when you click on all the characters and objects in every page. I might get the whole version too! 😊👍🏼
I'd been trying to keep my super old laptop going just to run these living books for my boys and it recently crapped out on me, so this is just awesome. My five and seven year olds love these just like I did. Thank you for keeping them alive! I can't believe there aren't more like these!!
Please update this app for the current iOS 😊👍🏼 I really want this app to keep working for when I have kids!! 😄 You guys did a great job porting this over. Thank you so much!! (Update): You guys are awesome! Thank you so much for updating this app; please keep the updates coming!😊
