What's it about?
JOSH & EMMA GO TO THE BEACH features the two characters having adventures and making discoveries. Along the way, kids get come exposure to counting, animals, and shapes. Two stories are available for free, and parents can purchase three more for $1.99 via in-app purchase. Kids can have a child narrator read the stories to them, if they wish.
Is it any good?
This free-to try preschool reader offers some gentle stories for little ones. Since Josh & Emma Go to the Beach offers two stories for free, parents can try it out before purchasing all of the stories. The graphics that accompany the story are nice, but children aren't likely to be engaged more than one or two times. However, for kids who need -- or prefer -- apps with less stimulation and few distractions, this one is a solid (and free) choice.
