My Little Pony:  Party of One App Review

As you all know, I'm busy homeschooling "Batman".   Everything is normally all boy at our house complete with with dump trucks, archery, and cars.   We were going to have company over at our house with two little preschool aged girls so I jumped at the chance to review My Little Pony "Party of One" app for Mosaic Reviews.  We had a great time with this app so read on for some great information on making learning extra fun.

Pinkie Pie and her friends in My Little Pony: Party of One is an interactive tale about the magic of friendship.   Who throws better   parties then Pinkie Pie?  Having just finished one celebration, Pinkie Pie sets off to invite all of her favorite ponies to a new party.  Suddenly though it seems like all of the ponies are busy.  Join in the investigation as Pinkie Pie visits her My Little Pony friends looking 
for clues.

Well "My Little Friends" Maddie and Lucy" loved it!   These girls were not quite readers.  There were two options on how to hear the story. The story could be read out loud by the app or the child could do it themselves.   Also, words could be highlighted to help with comprehension or vocabulary.   The story was fun and I loved the  bright colors!!  As soon as we were done with it they wanted to read the story again!!

*Totally cute app!
*Children can easily tap to hear the story read to them or they can read it.
*Highlighted words help with comprehension and vocabulary.
*Parents can track their progress.

I thought the price was a bit steep for $2.99 when it was just a story.
