A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The app is easy to use, with the interactive hot spots clearly highlighted on each page. The text is not highlighted while spoken, however, making it a bit less easy for new readers to follow along with the words.

There is a preview, within the app, for an upcoming sequel.

What parents need to know

Praents need to know that Teddy's Day is a app-book version of the children's picture book, What Does My Teddy Bear Do All Day? The text is not highlighted as it is spoken, but the language is all relatively simple. Using the app in every other way should be an easy task for young kids, as each page's interactive elements are clearly noted.

Is it any good?

TEDDY'S DAY has some of the more imaginative interactive elements that we've seen in ebook apps for young kids. Aside from the typical hot-spot animations that can be triggers (most of which are truly adorable), kids can take over for the protagonist as she builds a jigsaw puzzle -- literally piecing it together within the illustration. And there's a scene in which the young girl is drawing pictures, which leads kids to a virtual sketchpad where they can make their own crayon pictures -- and then hang them up within the illustrated room of the book! Being able to actually add to the book's illustrations is a really neat and exciting feature. The story itself -- about a young girl who spies on her teddy bear, hoping to catch him coming to life -- is a sweet and likable tale. The app's only real flaw is the lack of highlighting on the text, which would have made it a bit easier for new readers to follow along.
