This is hands down the BEST digital storybook I have reviewed.
The story is cute and fast paced and the lead character is adorable. Instead of simple illustrations, each portion of the story is fully animated. It's really a cartoon being played to a storybook narration.
The narrator does an excellent job of really getting into the story. She does the character voices and stresses the emotions of the various scenes quite well and keeps you interested in the forward progress of the book. You can also select the option to read it yourself.
The story itself is fun and interesting. It has a great moral to it which teaches kids about tolerance, kindness and not being prejudice.
The application comes with three games which are based on the storybook: jig saw puzzles, a memory game and painting. So this is basically 4 apps in one for your young child.
I give this app five star review and feel it is well worth the $2.99 it will cost you to download it.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.1 or later.
