Ratings and Reviews
5 year old completely captivated
I took my 5-year-old grandson to Washington DC to visit my son and his uncle. Having the Wanderful apps along for the plane ride was a life saver. He spent literally hours immersed in them. The Tortoise and the Hare seemed to be his favorite. Thanks again for making these great books available!
