How I Use It
This product would be nice for character education and accepting others for their differences. Students follow along to a story about different characters and what makes them unique. The app is easy to use. Students can make avatars. The negative is that there is only one story line, so the app is not very dynamic.
My Take
I wish the app had more story lines. I like that students can make their own avatars and the app gets them thinking about why they are unique. The story characters are engaging. Adults are able to control settings such as narration, music, silent, and saving your "you." For 2.99, you can purchase "Wee Alphas" which is an alphabet story on how each animal is unique. Overall, I think the app lacks versatility, so students would be engaged for a few times, but not an in-depth app to keep them engaged for a long time period.
