Review:

If your kids can't get enough of the Toy Story world, then they'll enjoy the Toy Story Showtime app. In the ebook app, Buzz Lightyear draws on the help of his fellow toys to create a talent show act that will impress Jessie. Throughout the app, young readers will learn highlighted vocabulary words. "Impress", they'll learn, means to "get attention by doing something special." "Something very exciting to see" is "spectacular." Parents will like that kids are learning new words, and kids will like the highly interactive illustrations, which demonstrate how each toy prepares for the talent show. At the end of the story, kids can make Buzz dance in a pair of simple mini games. In the first, the narrator cries out a dance move, and players tap the corresponding buttons on the screen. In the second, players create a sequence of dance moves that Buzz performs when "play" is selected. A third mini game challenges readers to replace a missing letter from a vocabulary word on screen. It's a fun app that will appeal to very young Toy Story fans.
