My 3 year old boy is not at the school going age yet what more with our current unofficial homeschooling style, I don't think he will understand or knows the feelings of going to school and being late! Nevertheless, I reviewed this app because I want my boy to know there is no need to be fearful of going to school (even if we are late!) and that teachers are friends, not someone to be feared of. Anyway, my review as below...

Description from the product page:
"Do you have a big bad wolf waiting in your school if you arrive late? Henry does! Find out who it is and just what makes him late every single day. Humor and quirky pictures will keep you grinning all day. Look for hidden animations and sound recordings on each page. How many can you find?
Creates learning opportunities, keeps kids engaged and entertained while the beautiful illustrations fuel their imagination. The story is interspersed with multimedia and includes two narration voices: Mary (the author) or Henry (himself!). Easy page turning with swipe, arrows or automatically advancing feature."
* I like that there are 2 options for the narrator's voice: Mary (the author) or Henry (himself!) and I prefer Henry's voice as I think it appeals to my 3 year old boy more to listen to someone around his age group.
* I like the storyline where it tells how Henry was terrified of being late to school because of something... which in the end, turns out to be nothing scary as he thought to be.
* There are cute illustrations and entertaining animations here and there, I like the part where we can twirl Henry on the swivel chair - because that's what we did with Ben not too long ago! Hahaha!
Room for Improvement?
* Nothing I can think of though I'd appreciate if there are hints (like blinking on the objects) for animations on each page!
