Okay, but could be better

My 7 year old likes the app, but It won’t save her stars for the levels after 4. It’s very frustrating because our goal is for 3 stars on each level and now we have to just remember what level she’s on and how many stars she got. Please fix this! I feel like we paid for nothing!

Good in theory

I am a 20 year veteran special education teacher that found this at a reading seminar. It looks great and isn't decked out with too many "whistles and bells". However, the stories are incomplete. The read aloud goes further than the actual viewed passage, but both end without a complete story. Disappointing. Enough so that it makes me hesitant to upgrade to the paid version.

Limited, expensive upgrade

There are only 4 free levels which took my 7 year old daughter less than 5 minutes to complete. I’m guessing it would take her about 30 minutes to complete the next 26 levels and the upgrade costs $8.99. I would consider the upgrade if it was $.99 or offered a couple hundred levels for the $8.99. Not a good value!
