Is it any good?

NASH SMASHER! is a fun, funny story that's also surprisingly effective as a lesson in social skills for youngsters. The book is written by Bill Doyle of television's Sesame Workshop, who has some experience communicating lessons to young children in an entertaining fashion -- and knows how to keep adults interested simultaneously. In this case, that's done via the story's interactive elements, which are full of surprises and really make the book app something that's fun for families.
