What it is and what you do with it: a set of about 34 books from the Little Critter series by Mercer Mayer.

Tap on the cover to download the chosen book (subscribers have access to all the books).

Each book has three reading modes: listen to the narrated story with the words highlighted, read as a 'traditional' book and auto play (automatic reading and turning the pages). Tap on the pictures to hear the associated words read out.

What we liked: the concept (a subscription based access to the full library). Little Critter stories. Original artwork. Sounds and sound backgrounds. Good navigation and reading options (easy access to single pages, words are highlighted when read by the narrator etc.). Professional narration (plus the option to record and share your own narration). Extra activities (e.g. spot the mice). The reporting feature for parents (though we wish there were more options).

What we didn't like: the pages are very static (apart from zoom in/zoom out type animations).

Note about our ratings: please note that our ratings are based on the 'full access' version of the app.
