The Little Red Hen: Animated Storybook
What parents need to know
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this animated storybook app can be used as read alone (it has a sound that indicates when kids should "turn" the page or parents can read it to their kids. It's also got Spanish and Cantonese settings.
Is it any good?
This classic children's bedtime story is simple and sweet. The animations are very basic but the graphics are gorgeous. The book opens with a mandolin playing. A child's voice, sometimes halting as if also learning to read, tells the story. When tapped the hen clucks, the dog barks, the cat mews and the mouse says "squeak squeak". Sadly, switching to Read By Myself didn't disable these cute sound effects.
