"The use of stop-motion photography and handcrafted dolls is a charming change of pace from computer graphics. The "look" sets the tone and underscores the intent; this series of apps go beyond teaching language arts by focusing on social and emotional skills such as cooperation and empathy. Parents can manipulate a variety of settings in order to best fit the needs of their child; for example, children can read the book alone or use the auto play feature, turn hints on or off, and chose whether or not to show the text. Readers can quickly and easily toggle between English and French versions of the app, which was a great feature for our family, because our children are learning French."
