Review Highlights:

I loved that the app works in three different ways (highlighted words, read it yourself, and auto play). The three modes and first-rate narration make it perfect for varying age levels. My 3-year-old can listen to me struggle through the tongue twisting rhymes while my 5-year-old benefits from the auto play feature. Both my early readers benefit from the highlighed words and animations. Clicking the star icon on each page also launches fun games (Super Speller, Who's Who, Rhyme Time, etc.) that extend the learning. My kids really loved this app, and I loved that they were laughing while learning common sight words and new vocabulary. I highly recommend this app to all parents.

The narrator's enunciation was impeccable. My husband, on the otherhand, needs to practice.

This app is perfect for emergent readers. The story is a classic and the app makes it even better. The navigation is intuitive and the animations bring the story to life. Kids can learn to pronounce any word in the story by simply tapping on them. Plus, tapping on the images displays the names and pronounces them as well. These are great features that really extend the value of the app, both in terms of learning and longevity of use.
