REVIEWS: 4 of 5 stars, “…preserves the loving message of the original board book and brings some creative extras to the digital update… The most unusual feature is hearing the words of the book in a song… it's among the most original additions to book apps I've seen and likely to be a big hit with toddlers…Just enough interactivity to keep a toddler's attention without disrupting the bedtime routine...The clear, heartfelt narration makes the most of the short verses. There's a nice rhythm to it…My favorite part is the prompt at the end to record your own verse…an option to personalize the last page with a child's name… …The song is also available as a separate iTunes download…The app, like the board book, makes a special gift for a new mother.” ---Smart Apps for Kids (smartappsforkids.com)
