Made for iPad! And works beautifully on the iPod Touch and iPhone devices too.
The "interactive" part comes in the form of games, activities, hidden Easter eggs, and the like. Gorgeous artwork, read-along text, and a reasonable price tag...What's not to like?
The classic "Jack and the Beanstalk" gets a terrific iPad makeover.
I was really impressed with Jack and the Beanstalk Children’s Interactive Storybook. It takes full advantage of the iPad’s size and looks great. The addition of the hidden activities within the story make it a fun app that my son really enjoyed

SPOILER WARNING - Don't read this next section if you want to discover all the great surprises in this app on your own!
All 32 pages are interactive, but here are some highlights you won't want to miss.
Tilt the application to watch the sun move. Move the sun with your finger below the mountains and observe day turn to night. Touch the house to watch and hear the chimney puff.
Touch the beans to play the memory matching game.
Magically finger-paint the black -and-white page. When most of the image has been painted, stars will burst with enchanting sounds, and reveal an amazingly vivid image. When the page is in color, touch the lake to play a popup game. Shake the device to either finish the painting or to restart painting again.
Touch Jack to get him to sing. It may take a few times...he's shy!
The Giant is high on the beanstalk. Tilt the device and watch the Giant sway. The Giant will complain when you shake the device - he's afraid of heights.
Fixed tilt bug for the sun interaction on page 1 and hen game on page 31.
Fixed screen sizing issues in the credits page and page 13 fireworks animation.
Ratings and Reviews
Great entertainment for the kids!
This is a great app and my kids absolutely love it. Full of a few surprises too. I have to admit I wasn't too impressed at the start as I did not think there was that much animation and it was just a read along book. However the kids have discovered many more features on the pages and are totally wrapped in it. Nice work guys keep em coming. It is a touch on the pricey side perhaps.
Our 3yo with the attention span of a flea was absolutely enthralled with this application all evening and had to be dragged away from it at bedtime. He was so pleased it was something he could do without assistance. Very, very highly recommended. Worth every cent. Note to developers ... This is what an interactive book should be like.
Excellent Book, The Kids Loved it
Well worth the money. The Kids thoroughly enjoyed reading and listening to the book. And a great inclusion of hidden games and features that kept them entertained for hours. :-)
