Wubbzy's Space Adventure [text]

What I liked My students and I used the app in class and they really liked it. In first grade they enjoyed being read to. The games were fun and engaging. Options were great, like that you can read the story yourself. The graphics are pretty neat, along with the sound of the pages turning. My students were really excited to see that you could paint your very own picture at the end.
Improvements I asked my students what they did not like. The only thing they could come up with is going to more planets and different creatures. The words in the story were a little big for first grade if they had wanted to try and read it to themselves. Functions to turn off music, adjust sounds and voice are an added plust.
General review I appreciate the app and its functions. They students were engaged the entire time we were using the app. I must say the words in the story were very big for my first graders but the option for the story to be read to them was perfect. We enjoyed painting our very own Wubbzy.

What I liked I love this book's scenery, animated pictures, and noises in the background. This app makes you feel like you are at the scene of the adventure. The bright vibrant pictures are a plus while some figures in each scene are moving around. This story is quite lengthy.
Improvements I would like to see the option for the app to have it read to the students or children the story. I would like to see a little more friendly language used if the app is attempting to encourage young students to participate in the purchase and interaction of this app.
General review Although Chabadabada is a new twist on an older story it has a cute story with a couple of neat animated scenes or story pages. This story must be geared toward the upper elementary to middle school levels because these words are much to large for an early K-3 students to use and does not have enough interactive features for the younger child. I would not have purchased this app to use in my first grade class or personal use.
