You never know what you will find after shearing a sheep! Young children will enjoy playing this app alone or with a family member.
Bottom Line: An app with a seemingly endless amount of content for your preschooler. Ebooks, songs, videos, puzzles and games will keep little ones occupied and learning for hours.
