5.0 out of 5 stars My three year old and five year old both enjoy this November 20, 2011

This is pretty easy to use, both of my kids (ages 3 & 5) can use it. They enjoy turning the pages and touching the screen to identify objects on the page.
EBooks usually have a scanned quality to them and don't take up the whole screen on my kindle but these stories fill the screen. The narrator's voice is pleasant and the sound effects really add a nice touch to the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great App! December 29, 2011
Verified Purchase
I bought this app even though I already have the book because my toddler loves reading it. When we travel or are n the car we don't have access to all the books we have at home.

This app is great because you can read it yourself or have it read to you. You can also touch the various images on the screen and it will say what the item is.

The voice is a real person and not a computerized voice and the illustrations are very good.

It was everything I expected for my grandson. The highlighted words and freedom of choices to read to him or let it read itself is great.

Love this. My son listens to it at nap time, it has an auto read feature. I just dislike they can switch it off so easily by tapping the screen.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for toddlers! October 17, 2012
By Ben

A great app for toddlers! We purchased this before a road trip with our 19 month old and it did a great job of keeping her occupied and taught her a few letters too! I especially like the auto play feature because she wasn't always very good at scrolling through the pages on her own at first, it's nice that she can still touch the letters and pictures to hear the sounds with this feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute! June 18, 2012

I love this app. Keeps my 16-mo-old occupied in the car or doc office. He can swipe through the pages or tap at the images so the book will repeat their names out loud.
