Best Apps: Wild About Books

From iTunes:
The award-winning picture book roars to interactive life as your kids tilt, swipe, and tap their way through this rollicking rhymed story that’s filled with a safari of surprises.  Whether you’re making monkeys flip, beach balls bounce, animals stampede, or bears burp, you and your kids are sure to laugh, learn, and get wild about books.  This new offering from Random House Children’s Books, the trusted publisher of beloved children’s classics, is the perfect app for story time or anytime.

- Explore 16 animated and interactive scenes 
- Tilt the iPad to explore the unique 3-D environment 
- Tap and swipe animals and other illustrations throughout the story to bring them to life.  
- Use the intuitive navigation wheel to easily revisit your favorite pages.

-Watch and listen as words are highlighted while the story is read aloud. 
-Turn off the narration and read at your own pace.

I love the look and design of this app.   However, I wish that you could swipe to turn pages. You have to tap on arrows at the bottom left and right to move through the story.  Also, the price point is a bit high - $4.99 at the time of this post.  If you don't mind paying the cost of this app (still less than the price of the book, if that helps.), it will be a delightful addition to your app library.
