33 exceptionally animated scenes drawn in a lively style.
Over 30 different interactions and several mini games.
Beautiful music and sound effects.
3 different reading modes for a different method of reading.
The native pronunciation and special “tap-to-listen” feature ensures accurate English learning.

So, as you can see there is a lot to love here, and this really is worth the $2.99 price, especially if you have young children to entertain or try to get off to sleep at night.
