Slow and steady wins the race.
This app proves it again, as the tortoise wins the race. But going slowly through the story is the best for us too. Each page has so many interactive hot spots that crack my kids and I up.
Luv the songs!.
My kids and I luv the songs and music in this app and love to hear them in Spanish too! I bought the in-app upgrade to French, and the songs are just as good in French too. An amazing piece of work.
