4.0 out of 5 stars Needs a You Read option May 15, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a great story for children & the pictures are imaginative. This could be a 5 star app if I could have the option to read it myself to my children on the main page. Though as it is I must mute the "Read To Me" & once once the narrator is done with the page, the text hides & we also miss the background music/sounds this way.

Add a Read Yourself option & I will change this to a 5 star.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nils Excellent Adventures (buy the book) May 15, 2012
Verified Purchase
The Wonderful Adventures of Nils Holgersson was the first 'big' book I've ever read as a kid and a highly original fairy tale. It's about Nils, a little Swede and a farm goose joining a flock of wild geese and traveling across their country - Sweden - learning a lot about the country and its countrymen, friendship, freedom vs. duty and responsibility... One of the main characters in the story is in fact Sweden as it was some 100 years ago as seen by a curious boy who never traveled before a freedom-seeking house goose and the flock of born-free, experienced but non-human travelers (the wild geese) who have their own interpretation of what they see on the ground. It's a long story and it's a big book, hundreds of pages long and I wouldn't be surprised if it was almost mandatory reading for all little Swedes as they grow up - anyone from Sweden can confirm this?? :)

Now... can you possibly tell the story of Nils' great adventure on 15 illustrated screens? Of course not. The illustrations are pretty and people and animals 'do' things when you touch them but... this is only the slightest hint at what the original story is about. Sure, Nils gets small, travels on the back of the goose and when he returns home he is kinder to his fellow animals. Which is good but it's not the story.

As of whether this rendering has an educational value... I am not so sure. Yes, it's a story, but it reads itself and it's impossible to stop the narrator from narrating and let the kids read on their own. Why?

1.0 out of 5 stars No Option to Read Myself (Edited) May 15, 2012
Verified Purchase
It's a cute enough story, with engaging pictures, but I get storybooks for my Kindle Fire to read them to my three year old, and this book has no option to read to yourself. The only menu options are Read to Me and Autoplay, and if you manually change the page, the woman starts reading. Very strange oversight.

Edited to add: A recent update added a banner advertisement to every page of the book, and another button on every page that links to in-app purchasing. This is inappropriate for a children's app or book, so I lowered my rating down to one star.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute, but needs update May 15, 2012
Verified Purchase
The story is cute for little kids. It is not an e book, it is an app so it is not very long. Don't expect a full 300 page story. For what it is ( kids animated storybook), it works for the most part. My three year old liked touching the screen to see the pictures move, but I was unable to read the story to her. The narrator cannot be turned off. I can turn the text on and off, but in order for me to read the story to my daughter, I have to turn off the sound - and then the sound effects are gone, too.

Since there in no "narrator off " mode, I give it three stars. It does have a cute story and the pages animate, but it cannot become a story I or any of my children can read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very good children's book with some odd features! May 15, 2012
Verified Purchase
I actually like this story and the animation the book has. It is a good storyline about being kind to animals and other people and thus enjoying their friendship. The animation and is nicely done and having the motion added to the book and the animal sounds in a good touch that the children will enjoy. The graphics are also very colorful and entertaining. I do wish they had a selection to allow the parent to read the story to the child and still allowed the animal sounds to be heard with the animation feature. You of course can turn down the volume to read the story but you lose the effect of hearing the animal sounds when you touch them to activate the animation.

I do not understand why this self-playing audio book does not have a pause key on it to stop the story being read due to an interruption. This seems like a feature that people would want. Since this book cannot be paused and save your place why does it need to read and write to your storage memory?

The book does ask for full internet access and I wondered why it has it. I turned off the WIFI and the book worked perfectly without it. Oddly enough it does have an email button and it is for you to send an email to your friends to spam them about the product. I don't care for this feature in any product.

The app asks for control of your audio setting and yet if you are listening to the book and hit the sleep button, on your Kindle Fire, the app continues to run. When you touch the power button to turn on your Kindle Fire, the book is reading the story before you even enter in your password code. In addition it has advanced itself along at the same pace as if you were listening to the book all along. This will run down your batteries as the app is obviously running while you believe you Kindle is asleep.

This could be a 5 star animated and self-reading story book for children but because of the above mentioned issues I have to give it a 3 star rating.

3.0 out of 5 stars My daughter won't sit through these.
I think they are to long. They do actually read to your child. The stories don't seem childish enough. The content is a little much for my 6 year old's attention span.
