My children love how interactive the stories are. I have a 6 year old son and a 18 month old. Both love the stories and how versatile the options are for the read by myself, read along, or auto play. So it offers parents the option of not having to sit through reading the entire book.

I would definitely recommend this app. I love the little critter and my 21 month old son loves this app. This series is great because of the different setting on the app. You can auto play, read on my own or read to me. There are also activities within the stories for the kids as they grow, like searching for the spider and grasshopper throughout the book. The kids can also touch pictures in the book and it will tell the child what the object is and the words will appear on the screen. This app is interactive, educational and your child will enjoy. The price is worth it, given 1 book is $1.99.
The one bad thing is when a story is over my son gets so upset, he hasn't figured out how to control the playing of the stories to start a new one. That's not an app issue though, my son just needs time to learn how to work the app.

I love Little Critter stories and won't review the content of the literature. They're they type of books I enjoyed as a child and am happy my sons love now.
Better than the stories is that the app has worked flawlessly. I don't remember how many stories there are... 10ish. Regardless, you can choose which story to read then read yourself, read and follow along, or have an auto-play option. With each option you can touch objects on the pages and see the word flash up and Little Critter say "chair", "bus", "spider", etc. There are goals to find objects during a story as you read and the kids love the interactive nature. Both my 2 & 4 year old have had a ball with this app and I have found them choosing this over videos or games several times.

Our grandson loved it. I could read the stories myself or have them read. The readings were great so I let them be read. My grandson is 2 years 3 months old. He just got a new baby brother. The stories all seemed to fit. There was one on getting a new baby sister, one on learning to use the potty, one on trying to do something nice for mommy, along with others. He liked them all. I will be looking for more Mercer Mayer apps.

I love how interactive these books are. You cant beat the price either! Oceanhouse Media, Inc never fails to impress me. My kids (2 and 7) love reading these and having them read to them. They are also helping my 7yr old learn new words. The graphics are good, no glitching or pausing. I would definitely recommend this book collection for anyone.

My Grand daughter loves that the app reads to her. She loves to touch the pictures and turn the pages on her own. This was her introduction to little critter, books that I read to her Daddy when he was little, and she loves them. Well worth the price. I wish there were more collections, I would buy them all.
