Thank you

I know this app came out years ago but that's part of the reason I'm writing the review. I've read this book time and Tim again both to two of my kids now and they've LOVED it. We even impersonate the characters at the dinner table. Im not even sure the developer or author will read this but I just want to say THANK YOU. It's been a real fun part of my family.

Our son loves this story! The voice is pleasant to listen to, the animations are fun and engaging, and the story really speaks to him. He is often ill, and sometimes his friends don't understand why he doesn't want to play. When he feels isolated he pulls out this story. Really wonderful book to enjoy as a family or on his own.
