Something Fun for the Kids (and me too)
I put this on my iPad to give my nephews and nieces something to look at other than angry birds. My five-year-old nephew loved the sound effects. He went through the entire book touching everything to see what made a noise. He also had fun counting along with the narrator.
Better than I thought it would be
So, at first I thought it was Romeo and Juliet for babies. But when I read it I realized it was just using parts of the Shakespearean play for a counting book.
It is very cute and interactive. While I prefer physical books for my little ones, this does very well in those situations where it's not practical to lug around a bag of books. And check out the hidden surprises on each page - really cool!
Great job Gibbs Smith!
