The Little Red Hen - iTouch app

The Little Red Hen is a storybook app from Kidztory that sells for $.99.  It is the classic tale of the little red hen who does all the work in creating a loaf of bread and receives no offers of help from her friends. The app offers a read to you option (read by a small child) and a read it yourself option.  The pictures are pleasant and the movement of the illustrations will catch the interest of beginning readers. For a moment I was disappointed that there wasn't more that you could do with this app, but when you think about it, are you going to be able to buy a comparable book for ninety-nine cents? I wonder when major publishers will begin creating storybook apps from their catalogs.  Imagine The Polar Express as a storybook app.
