Cute but others better

It is cute but barnyard dance and going to bed book is better. Not as much animation compared to the others

Get the bundle. These are great!

My husband and I both use these. iPhone 6 Plus and 7 plus. Never have issues except 1-2 times if my phone had been on vibrate when I went into app there wouldn’t be sound. Turn vibrate off, exit app and go back and it’s perfect. My children love these. 2 and 3 and both with autism. When my son, 2, is having meltdowns sometimes the sound of this book is all that’ll bring him out of it. Works on his fine motor skills too.

So glad the makers decided to update! My son LOVES these books and I haven't updated my iOS because I don't want to lose them!
