I used this app a LOT last year with my preschool speech therapy students and was upset when it didn't work outside of wifi this year. BUT...the new update fixed everything and my students this year are loving it! They love the interactive pages and the animal sounds are nicely realistic. The new matching games at the end are a nice addition. Thank you for a well developed app!
