    Mix in Pecos Bill with Robin Williams, how can you not enjoy this, even as an adult. My kids loved it, thought it was hilarious and all around good entertainment. Definitely bringing new engagement to book, well done.

    Very well done. Our daughters loved it!
  • Too large a file

    Was very excited to download this app, but at 312 MB it's taking FOREVER to download via my computer.
  • 4 (or more!) kinds of fun

    By Little D's Mom
    My 6 year old pre-reader and I enjoyed this app 4 ways: I read the story straight thru, then he re-told it using the record feature. He hadn't previously known the story of Pecos Bill, and I was impressed by how much he remembered when prompted by the fun and detailed illustrations. He loved to play back his recording, too. Most fun was the audiobook option read by Robin Williams - sound effects, embellishments, very entertaining! And, it kept the little guy occupied for another 20 minutes while we crawled along in traffic! We'll be checking out the other Ruckus Media titles ...

    Such rich colors, so much to see, watch, and listen to with this super fun app. Robin Williams tells this tale in a way that only he can. Gotta get this for your mobile library.
  • Very cool!

    By momof2littleguys
    Wow, what a great app! My 4- (and 2!) year-old is transfixed! Oh the possibilities: long car trips, waiting at the doctor's office, fidgety kids in restaurants—what a handy thing to have to entertain the kids. We will be using this tons, definitely getting the other titles!
