Blastoff to the sky and become a Rocket reader with this Super library. This is the best library ever. You don't even have to have a "library card"!!! It has many adventurous stories and fun ways to reassure young kids being good is fun!! The music is thrilled and exiting. The characters are real- looking. The stories are designed in such a cool way that kids can learn to keep calm, ask for help, and be nice!!! You can take this everywhere- on the go, in the car, on the bus, while traveling and before bed!!! Play a cute game of creature hunting in every story. One even has egg hunting. Press the pictures and learn new words. This library is the library of the year!!! Don't miss out!!? Very addicting and like hanging out with 🐶s. Happy readers!!

My 4yr old LOVES little critter! I try buying new books for him when I can but they get to be expensive. I stumbled onto this app and I instantly had a whole library at my fingertips, and interactive one at that! It’s so neat!! You are given the option to have the books read to you, or you can record yourself reading for your little one! Your child can tap on objects from the illusions and the narrator will tell them what the objects are called or will name the action being portrayed in the pictures.. they can tap on the words for repeating and more. Such a fun app for me and my son to engage in together! It’s perfect.

Couldn't be happier!

This app is very easy to use and has all of the options I was hoping to find (read to me, read by myself, and auto play). The app offers a subscription, or you can purchase the complete library for lifetime access. I chose the latter. We love all of the books. This will be a favorite with my kids for a long time! So pleased with this purchase.
