A Story and Activities Too

Cinderella Fairy Tale Dress Up Storybook is a fun story that also includes five activities. You can practice counting, do jigsaw puzzles, paint, match, and memorize and place the characters. Each game is related to the story, and I enjoy that the activities are directly related to each page, not the general story itself. For example, when you are matching the characters, you match the specific characters to the specific place that they appeared on the page. This is unique to this app and I like how it works. You also must count items that are on the page such as two potatoes.

Once you reach the page where the Fairy Godmother helps Cinderella get ready for the ball, you find the dress-up portion. Your child can choose the crown, dress, shoes, and more in this fun activity. Additionally, you even get to dress up the prince, and choose the instruments to play at the ball. Each page has its own unique activities, and is well-thought-out.

Read Along

Cinderella Fairy Tale Dress Up Storybook has the option of viewing the text, or just listening and looking at the page. You can stop, play, or pause the reading, record your own voice to the story book, and there is a drop down or push up option to hide and reveal the text. The text does highlight the line that is presently being read, which is much better than no highlighting. The only better way would be to highlight the word rather than the whole line.
