A beautifully illustrated story app which covers lots of different themes, such as gardening, friendship, cooking, behaviour etc. It imparts a lot of information in a friendly way, which engages children throughout, building vocabulary and giving lots of opportunities for conversations. Words are highlighted as they are read and each character has different funny voices. There are also bonus recipes from Raymond Blanc, which children and parents can enjoy together, which are also seen during play in the app. A great way to link the online and offline worlds for children. Cooking is also a great opportunity to extend language opportunities.
