Description from the product page:
"Biscuit’s Birthday is perfect for encouraging early readers with interactive animations and sound effects on every page. A longtime family favorite with over 16 million copies in print, parents will love inviting their children to Biscuit’s birthday party to celebrate with the little yellow puppy and his friends. Parents and their children can enjoy learning to read with Biscuit together or young readers can explore on their own through independent play.
Author Alyssa Satin Capucilli and illustrator Pat Schories bring the well-loved Biscuit The Little Yellow Puppy to life in this wonderful and popular book.
Key benefits of the app for early readers include:
• Improve reading comprehension by selecting between two narration options: “Read to Me” or “Read to Myself”.
• Reinforce cause-and-effect with silly animations and humorous sounds throughout.
• Develop early reading skills with text that highlights as the narrator reads
• Enjoy a fun memory game, which encourages young readers to match pairs of characters.
• Promote creative thinking with the fantastic coloring book—the color-in-the-lines mode is perfect for little fingers, and the art can be shared with friends.
• Bonus: There are hidden bones on every page. See how excited Biscuit gets when they are collected."
* I love the beautiful illustrations, the soft pastel colors used and the characters in this app is so cute!
* I like the storyline where Biscuit, the doggy in this app celebrates its birthday and all his friends came over to share his joy and celebrate with it. I like it when Biscuit unravels its birthday present as I can reminisce our recent birthdays (mine and Ben's) and how we celebrated ours with presents and all.
* I like the options provided at the drawing activity where you can choose to allow the color-inside-lines mode or free and easy mode. The coloring utensils provided and the different type of colors are also good and easy to select.
* I also enjoy the other activities in this app which is the matching game, puzzle game and the sticker game.
