Heidi - Top Pick with Smart Apps For Kids

"This app is classy. In fact it is downright charming from top to tale (deliberate sic). A great deal of time and careful thought has quite obviously been put into it. It is an app that feels as though it should be bound in leather, given a silk bookmark and cherished for future generations."

"Brilliant app, thoroughly enjoyed by my school aged, preschooler and toddler alike. Even enjoyed by parents! Extra games etc to explore are really well thought out and love the educational aspect of it for older children to explore. Brilliant to see an old classic brought to life for yet another generation."

Review by Multi-Testing Mommy

"My 7 year old daughter and I have enjoyed snuggling up together with the iPad and listening to a story that I remember hearing many years ago. My daughter's attention was kept throughout the entire story and she enjoyed the additional interactive and engaging options of being able to tap (in sequence) the characters after each "page" to hear their voices offer some dialogue to compliment the story."

"Overall, I am very excited about the Heidi Story Collection. Children are introduced to this classic story in a way that is enjoyable, beautifully told and easily followed, without feeling like the language is in any way watered down."

Guest post on Fun Educational Apps by Deanne Shoyer

Deanne Shoyer, who has rewritten and adapted the text for the updated Heidi apps, has written a guest post on Fun Educational Apps website, talking about the update of the apps.

As someone who grew up in Europe, I don't remember a time when I didn't know Heidi's story. My mother had given me the copy of the book she had as a child which I re-read many times, so when Katrin asked me if I was interested in updating the text of her app versions of Heidi, I jumped at the chance.

I just wanted to stop by and tell you how much my son is enjoying the Heidi stories. We're on the second one now, but will be doing the 3rd tonight. He absolutely loves them, so much so that he forgets that he can actually 'touch' the characters to hear them talk. Fantastic books. Great job! ♥

Heidi Part I, II and III all got a five apple rating on AppsForHomeschooling!

...Heidi Part I is very well produced with high-quality professional narration, colorful illustrations, and an easy-to-understand text. Many homeschooling families enjoy introducing their children to abridged versions of classic literature to become familiar with the major plot points and characters before introducing them to the complete works;  this digital app-book is a great way to get started...
