Fun App

Excellent for children at Thanksgiving and for year round learning. The story text appears and the app can read to the child. Reminds me of how I learned to read as a kid. Mom would read and I eventually could pick out the small words, like I , and , to, and so on. It comes with Spanish too, so I am tempted to learn a few words on my own.

Pleasant graphics, sounds, story line. My bet is that kids from 1 to 4 will greatly enjoy it. It gives adults the chance to bond and play with kids by making funny animal noises. Get the app have some fun.

Wonderful app!

Our 17 month old son loves this app. It added the word Turkey as well as several other words to his vocabulary . . . But mostly we love it for the charming story that engages him. He touches the screen and hears the corresponding sounds; and thus gets engaged with the story in a real way. Highly recommend this app!

Love this book!

This book is so great, my kids absolutely love it! I love all of the different noises and the way the story goes along. Also the Spanish version is so cute! I love how I can expose my kids to another language at an early age, and they adore it! Definitely don't miss out on this app :)
