The moment I saw this app about Red Fox in the latest Oceanhouse Media's press release in my email inbox, I remembered having reviewed a similar app like this few months ago about ladybug, I immediately request for the promo code to redeem this app. Anyway, my review as below...

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 like the storyline where it tells how a Mother and Father fox teach their 4 cubs to hunt for food and also how they defend themselves and their cubs from predators (coyotes).

* I used the opportunity in this book to teach my 3.5 years old son about the Red Fox, how it hunts for food and also defends itself and its cubs from predators.

* The illustration is beautiful and quite life-like!
