What it is: a short interactive story (8 pages/scenes) with additional activities.

What you do with it: there are two modes: 'read by myself' and 'read and play'. For each page you watch a short animated intro, then follow the text and audio instructions and try to complete the task (feed the pigs, pick apples, drive the tractor etc). Touch the objects in the scene for clues or extra interaction (like feeding the birds in the nest).

What we liked: the concept, very nice illustrations and animations, simple but entertaining activities, high level of interaction, audio and visual clues. The app can be used even by smaller children (with parental assistance).

What we didn't like: the words are not highlighted when the text is being read, some of the tasks have more purpose (like picking apples and eggs) than others (e.g. riding the horse). Some of the actions could be more intuitive. A simple reward system for completing each task would make this app even more fun. The story may not be too appealing to older kids (who are supposed to read it themselves).
