What are Reviewers saying

** @GillRobins - 4 star rating - Bright, attractive graphics provide plenty of detail to discuss. The emotions of the different characters are clearly defined, so older children could reflect on why the animals feel the way they do as the story unfolds.

** @AhgooReview - 4 star rating - The art work is beautiful. The moral is an important one that we all must learn. This app has a unique feature that I have yet to see called “Sleep Time”.
