Really happy to see the classics are brought back to life. The masterful combination of fun and learning makes this a must-have App for the iPad generation! Hey, where is my Green Eggs and Ham?

Love it!!

I am glad this is now in app version!! I grew up playing this game on CD-ROM. I am sooo excited that now I can share it with my kids! Great game and great value! Definitely a good buy.

We loved this software years ago, and were thrilled to find it in the App Store! We are anxiously awaiting more titles to join these classics!

The gold standard

Finally! Living Books, the gold standard in which all interactive storybooks were based, is finally on the iPad! I can't wait to share these stories with my daughter!Ps: we hope "Harry and the Haunted House" is next!

5 year old completely captivated!

Two weeks ago I took my 5-year-old grandson to Washington DC to visit my son and his uncle. Having the Wanderful apps along on the iPad for the plane ride was a life saver. He spent literally hours immersed in them. The Tortoise and the Hare seems to be his favorite. Thanks again for making these great books available!

Cognitive challenged no problem

Thank you Wanderful for bringing the LivingBooks back to life. My daughter is cognitively challenged and can't engage with "educational" material. She has always loved these books, Arthur, Little Monster, Berenstain Bears, Tortoise, Harry, and now she can engage on iPad. Can't thank you enough.

Works great! So fun to have these books for my kids.

I have very fond memories of using these living books in school. We were all very sad when iOS 10 didn't support these cd's and other programs. I found these a few months ago but the ratings were low - it seemed to have problems with crashing. I checked back a few weeks ago just before we went on a long trip and some people seemed to have more positive things to say so I decided to try it. Works great! No crashing, my son loves it! It kept him happy on a 6 hour drive. We had it on the "read to me" mode, but I'm sure he will soon want to explore the pages and find all the fun animations. Love it! Thanks so much for bringing this to the ipad!

No Audio

There’s no sound in this app! Do not buy!

Hoping this will get fixed in an update

Uh so the sound won't work, but if that somehow was fixed these were my favorite as a kid... I want to use this but seeing as it has no sound.... I'm super frustrated that I just paid 5 bucks for something we can't use.
