Rich, immersive storybook makes Cinderella interesting

My 3 and 5 year olds love this book because there's so much to do on every screen. Some of the dialogue is initiated by clicking the characters, and there are lots of other things kids can do on the screen beyond just listing to the book. The graphics and sound are also well executed.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models

CINDERELLA - NOSY CROW ANIMATED PICTURE BOOK (FOR IPHONE) offers a wonderful new presentation of a classic story many of us know by heart. It's nice to see beauty de-emphasized, even if it is still mentioned. And the stepmother even has nice things to say about Cinderella at the end. And where else do Cinderella and Prince Charming get to play ping-pong? The interactive games throughout are great ways for kids to really get involved in the story -- constructing the coach, choosing Cinderella's gown, playing DJ with music at the ball, etc. If you have an iDevice with front-facing camera, you can even see your "reflection" in any mirror in the illustrations. The entire experience is undeniably charming.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
