I'm a full-time mummy

* Title: Just Helping My Dad
* Price: $0.99
* Category: Books
* Released: Jun 05, 2013
* Current Version: 2.3
* Size: 38.8 MB
* Language: English
* Seller: Oceanhouse Media, Inc.
* Rated: 4+
* Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.

Description from the product page:

"Little Critter is having a great day helping his dad. Whether he's making breakfast, cutting the grass or washing the car, Little Critter is filled with enthusiasm. Things may not always go as planned, but that doesn't stop Little Critter from trying his hardest!"

One of the reasons why I wanted to add this story app into our collections is NOT because my boy is not helping his daddy out, but more to reaffirm to him that he is doing a good job by helping daddy out with the houseworks and I'm glad this storyapp did the job!

What's good?

* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and the words pop out to tell you what it is!

* I took this opportunity in this story app to teach my boy that even though he may be very enthusiastic with helping daddy out, there are some tasks that still required daddy / grown up people to do first and that he must still listen and obey to instructions.

* I took the opportunity in the page above to show my boy how a lawn mower works as we do not have a lawn (our porch has been cemented since day 1) and that it is important to let an adult handle machinery / heavy equipments.

"An afternoon playdate finds Little Critter climbing trees, racing cars, playing basketball, riding bikes and more with his friend. Along the way, his good nature and humor come in handy as he handles the ups and downs of friendship."

I'm a full-time mummy

One of the reasons why I wanted to add this story app into our collections is because my 4 years old boy is at the age of making friends now (he is still a very shy boy but we can see he's making some effort nowadays) and I thought this is a good opportunity to let him know what is good with having friends around.

What's good?

* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and the words pop out to tell you what it is!

Just My Friend and Me

* I took this opportunity in this story app to teach my boy that when we are done playing toys with our friends, we do have to be responsible in cleaning up the toys and putting everything back into their own place.

* I also explained to my boy that friends are good as we can share our toys and happiness with others and I can actually see my boy sharing more often nowadays with his baby sister so I am looking forward to seeing him applying these sharing traits with other children around him.

I have most of the Little Critter story apps on my iPad but really, this is a collection that must be added into my iPad!!! My 4 years old boy likes listening and watching Little Critters so yes, I am definitely happy I get to add this collection! (and I've gotta keep my eyes open for the next collection hahaha!)

What's good?

* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and the words pop out to tell you what it is!

* My boy particularly enjoys 'Just Lost' as he is very much into his security guard / soldier / police phase right now and I love this app too as I get to use the opportunity to teach my boy to stick around us whenever we go out and also to teach him what to do in the event he found himself lost and apart from us.

* In "Just Shopping With Mom", my boy also like this app as I normally bring him and my 1.5 years old girl along whenever we go out grocery shopping and I think he can totally relate himself to Little Critter's situation in the storyapp. I took this opportunity to teach my boy that we need to be patient if we want something, to always behave, to stay close to mummy when he is out and to help look after and protect his little sister as well.

* The rest of the story in this collection are very good as well as it comes with lessons to learn which we can instill on our children - such as to be caring towards our pets and siblings, to be neat and control our emotions, to have ambitions and goals  and so on.
