Very Sweet Children's Storybook

I'm not sure what the other reviewers were looking for who gave bad reviews. This app is what it is...a mini, nicely illustrated Children's story about a Newfoundland dog who, as legend has it, rescued passengers aboard the sinking Titanic. There are interesting Newfie facts provided at the end and it costs .99 cents total. If you are a Newfie dog lover, you will find this story sweet and interesting. It is not a game, just a simple story with cute drawings. I liked it :-)

My daughter loves the story of Rigel, the dog in the Titanic

My daughter loves the story of Rigel, the dog in the Titanic. It was worth downloading, because she likes reading it daily. Actually, she likes using the "read it to me" feature which helps her follow the reading. It's a plus! Illustations are beautiful and colorful. I think this book is a good introduction to the story of the Titanic's sinking without the sad facts, without tragedy.
