This interactive story app gives you three different options; read to me, read by myself and read and play. The story helps children to build an awareness of different types of print, as children see alphabet spaghetti, addresses on letters, mobile phones etc. Interactivity throughout the app is connected to the story line (with the sparkling areas being those that need tapping), like typing in the phone number for 'Feed-em Fred', which will help your child really enjoy the story and understand what is going on. There is great language used in the app, wonderful for building vocabulary. The narrator adds lots of silly voices, which parents can repeat when they read it themselves. There are loads of opportunities for discussing what is happening in the book, especially all the disgusting food options Feed-em Fred tries to serve up!
