KIRKUS REVIEW

One of the first 12 books published in the Little Golden Book series and arguably one of the most beloved, this is the perfect choice to debut the series on iPad, iPhone and iPod.

Developers very smartly kept the book's distinctive appearance and original 1942 story and illustrations. Once readers crack open that familiar golden spine, they can personalize the "inside cover" with a child's name and picture. The tilt and touch features are simple but well executed, and the app is loaded with educational goodies. The icon in the top right of each page unlocks interactive learning games appropriate for preschoolers, and kids earn "stickers" for counting or color and word recognition. These can be used at the end to create a personalized scene to save to the photo album. Each word is highlighted as it is read; when the narration has been turned off, readers who need help can tap on individual words to hear them. Not only will nostalgic adults be thrilled to share a favorite book with a child, but the option to record your own voice reading the text will be especially attractive to grandparents or parents who are away.

This classic story of naughty puppies and their backyard adventures—complete with fuzzy caterpillars, musical flowers, crickets and frogs and all topped off with dessert—is sure to be a favorite yet again. (iPad storybook app. 2-6)
