“This is a beautiful book! Very well done and captivating. As a Speech-language Pathologist, it is definitely an app I will be using with my students. I also tried it out with my 12 year old middle-school daughter and she gave it a 2 thumbs up! It’s one of the best I’ve seen- and with almost 400 apps on my iPad, that’s saying a lot. Thanks for making such a wonderful book!” – User review for “The Three Pandas”
“We love this version of Goldilocks.” – User review for “The Three Pandas”
“This app brought magical laughter into my house from my children. They loved the interactive musical tree and how the screen would fill up with snow. Make sure and tilt the iPad to see the snow move just like it is inside a real snow globe! I am so glad that I bought this app for my children! They will enjoy it for many Christmas’ to come.” – User review for “Snow Globes”
“This app just makes me laugh every time I play with it. It is truly adorable and well written. Each cat seems to have it’s own personality and I just love the little mouse who puts his two cents in after the cats are done singing. (My favorite is the little black cat in the basket who purrs.) A great purchase! Thank you!” – User review for “Cat Chorus”
