A classis in a new form

Well, this 'book' was a childhood favorite, and has become an adulthood favorite as I have been sharing this story with my kids. This app of course let us do that on iPhone & iPad. What is really cool though is that this 'book' in app form retails the same gorgeous and classic style of the original- while brining it to an app form with all the cool things you would want from an app. The Meryl Streep narration is great, although I tend to read this and bring my own nuances to this classic. Video version, record your own voice, and the graphics are really great.

My two daughters love this app, the story and the narration make it feel as though they are watching a movie. They keep asking to watch another book, Ruckus media has done another great job with this app.
