Lots of Fun

:
This is a fun program, offering a cartoon of the John Henry story, read by Denzel Washington and accompanied by B.B. King's music, plus a book that you can read. The production values are absolutely top-flight.

I have one teensy quarrel: the music is sometimes mixed a bit too loud when Denzel Washington is reading, making it hard to listen to. I don't think the developers of the app have any control over that - I think the video was created long ago for another purpose and then turned into an app.

Aside from that, this is very entertaining and fun.

5/5 stars

Very well done! We loved it.

5/5 stars

Fun and Engaging App!

:
This is a wonderfully produced app that combines a great story with super video and music. My older son was glued to the video and loved the story, while I appreciated the storytelling by Denzel Washington and music by B.B. King. We plan to play around with the Recording feature to allow my older son to record the story for this little brother. I'm looking forward to checking out the other stories available!
