Our Thoughts

imageMy three years old daughter loves princesses.   And she likes Cinderella a lot.   She often want to watch the Cinderella movies we have from Disney.  So when she saw that I had the Cinderella story on our iPad, she was delighted to say the least.

I like the fact that a young girl is ready the book.   She is very articulate and pronounce the words very clearly.  The illustrations are marvelous and makes you feel as though as you are stepping inside a story book.    And having the interaction within the pages like the cat meowing, the birds singing and the sparkling around the fairy Godmother’s wand. 

From the story read, the only disappointment I have is the reaction of the father toward his only daughter.   He does nothing when his new wife and imagestep-daughters are abusing her.   I find it sad.   My daughter is too young to understand this particular part of the story but it sadden me that it is this way.  

Nevertheless, the story is beautiful read, the illustrations are stunning and this storybook will definitively grab the attention of your daughter

The Cinderella app is available on iTunes for 2.99$.
