What it is: an interactive book with additional educational activities introducing the basics of telling time and how to read the clock.

What you do with it: listen to the story and touch the screen for some interactive elements. Educational activities include: learning how to read the hours one by one (by moving the sun or the moon around the clock), a simple puzzle (putting the right numbers on the clock) and reading the hours from the analog clocks by matching them to what the narrator says.

What we liked: the concept, easy navigation, good educational value, nice illustrations, good story and narration. Good options for 'reading' the book (highlighting the portion of text being read, repeating the paragraph). Simple but quite good educational activities with voice and visual clues.

What we didn't like: we wish the story was longer! While the text on the page is being read, touching the 'interactive' objects, e.g. the speaking characters, will make both sounds play together. The app concentrates only on the basics of telling time (full hours). No randomization in the activities (the tasks appear in the same order).
