Ratings and Reviews
Completely adore this
This book has been around forever and should be on every child’s bookshelf. To have it in an app it’s just wonderful and I don’t even have kids and I’m 57 years old and love this thing. So glad someone had the sense to just let it be read by Grover so you get a full experience and he can interact with all of the challenges he has along the way :-) excellent book for helping a child face their fears. I won’t take a star away for this because it’s just so wonderful but I do wish that the developers would do something to make it possible for children who are visually impaired to have access to this and make it compatible for voiceover technology. Even if they can’t see the pictures, they would understand the side effects and all the expressiveness. This is coming from someone his best friend is legally blind in love this book as a child, and is very disheartened that it can’t be enjoyed. Please consider exploring how that might change.
One of the absolute best
A total classic, and the app ran with the magic of the book and is a classic itself! So many hidden gems. Any time I visit my nieces and nephews kids are climbing over me to play/read, and my infant absolutely loves it!
For the person who said it needs more interaction, it doesn’t. Like the book, the story is well done it doesn’t need “bells and whistles.” It stands so strong on its own.
Please don’t try to “improve” it and ruin it like “Elmo’s potty time” was ruined recently! Just update for compatibility and let perfection be!
Classic book is now animated and interactive
When I was a kid, I loved this book. Now the child in my life is captivated by the story as well, only his experience is enhanced with animation and sound effects! Thank you so much for updating this app to work with iOS 11. I'm glad we can continue to enjoy it together.
