Check out some of our reviews:

“I have reviewed thousands of iPhone and iPad apps, many of them children’s books, but to date not one that has grabbed my imagination as Zanny – Born to Run.”- Crazy Mike’s Apps

“It’s a great app ... Really really good story ... Lots of fun!”- Gary James,

“Fantastic book! Interactive and lots of fun! Run Zanny, Run Zanny, Run, Run, Run!”-

“A must for anyone working on the socio-emotional issues with an autistic child or just trying to discuss emotions and feelings with a very young child. This is a wonderful new developer I plan to watch closely!”- Digital Storytime

“Zanny has been a very big hit! The kids I've introduced the story to have all loved it. The rhythm of the story captures their attention and one 5 year old with autism was repeating the last lines and giggling. They absolutely love making Zanny go zipping off the page!”- Jordan Sadler, MS, CCC-SLP

“Zanny – Born to Run is an app both typical and special needs kids will enjoy. Typical kids will like the interactive story and hopefully gain an understanding of those with autism, while kids on the spectrum relate to Zanny’s constant moving and behavior.”- Pad Gadget

Features include:

* Beautiful, hand-drawn illustrations
* Interactive and Exciting sound and movement touch features to hunt for and discover (Make Cheerios fly across the page, frogs leap for joy, play kickball!)
* Pictures that move by touch and animate with gravity as you tilt your iPad
* Professional and lively audio narration
* Charming background music recorded especially by an award-winning producer

***Bonus game attached - "The Extra Special Feelings Game" is for young children, or anyone who needs help with recognizing feelings and facial expressions.

Award-winning writer Pamela Sloane-Bradbury and veteran cartoonist Allison Garwood created these fun, witty, picture books as a way of helping children with limitations understand their behavior better in a positive and engaging way while boosting their self-esteem.

"Zanny, Born to Run" is part of the very first book series written expressly FOR children with special needs.

All kids go crazy for Zanny's antics, but particularly "extra special" kids who love to see themselves in living color.
