Excellent app, constructive criticism

This book app skillfully blends the static text of the printed version with multimedia and interactivity. The few videos included are relevant and interesting. I wish the app included other videos that were mentioned in the text. Also, I wish it had a tappable index to let readers re-locate a word, image, or video without having to remember the page it was on.

The app is rated 4+, but the vocabulary and complex sentences are too advanced for kids that young. To his credit, my 5 year old kindergartener kept an interest as I read to him, but I believe that's because he has been captivated by deep sea creatures for two years. For kids with a fleeting interest, this book may not hold their interest. I recommend it for 8 and up.

The navigation is good, and the hotspots are consistent and explained well at the start. One suggestion I have is to make accidental page turns less likely somehow. Make the hotspots bigger and give the pages some friction. Little fingers have a tendency to slide while trying to tap, causing pages or entire chapters to change.

On the whole, I enjoyed this app with my boy and I look forward to seeing more material like it.
