At Fun Educational Apps all the kids loved it. We got it while free but did not have the time to review yet! … but our friends at Digital Storytime did and here is the review:
Miss Spider stars in this popular book series by author David Kirk, and fans of this title on the bookshelf (published in 2006) will want to download a copy of their favorite Miss Spider tale for bedtime in digital form. The 'play' feature is basically an animated movie packaged into the book, lasting over 12 minutes.
Once you are in the reading mode of the book, the interactivity brings the story alive and adds a magical quality to the whole experience. The audio is crisp & lovely with nice, relaxing background music that makes it lovely at bedtime, although there are many games and interactive elements that could be too stimulating for some children.
The pages of the book, under 'read', are filled with cute animations ... hopping bugs, flapping wings and the sounds of snoring to name a few. None of these animations goes beyond dazzling for a moment, but they do a nice job enhancing this story about going to bed on time. The bugs use a 'wishing web' that is basically a 'star chart' for the bugs to earn points.
The storybook and video are also bundled with three simple but cute extras. There are six puzzles with two difficulty levels (6 or 12 pieces) as well as a matching game (with 16 or 30 cards). In addition to the games, this app contains over a dozen 'coloring pages' with choice of colors, thickness of 'paintbrush' and even the option to just paint on a blank page.
Overall, this is a packed book app with lots of material for a child to enjoy and explore. It makes a nice bedtime book in the 'read' mode while also offering a lot of extras. It would be nice to see highlighting of the words while narrated, but overall this title is a real treat, offering a cute story with lots of replay value. For fans of the Miss Spider books in particular, it is a treat not to be missed.
