My Review:
My review is based on my daughter and I using the interactive book.  First, we downloaded it on my iphone.  That was fun and definitely entertaining for a while but it just wasn’t as good as when we downloaded it on the ipad.  The size absolutely made all the difference.  The features were the same either way but the ipad just provided a much more substantial platform for the book.  My daughter is 7 years old and probably would have told me she was too old for the three little piggies.  But she definitely wasn’t too old to play with it for a long time while we were preparing Thanksgiving dinner.  It kept her thoroughly entertained.  Even my 12 year old son loved it and his favorite feature was the option to change the female voice to a male voice.  I must say I did like that feature also.  I also liked the pleasant way the story ended… I would highly recommend this application/interactive book for anyone with children.  I didn’t realize there was a huffing/puffing feature and I kept seeing my kids blowing into the microphone.  It was cracking me up!  

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
