I liked how easy this was to follow. It looks like something the students will enjoy learning through play while using. I was a bit sad that you said there was an in app purchase used. On our campus we have to pay for all iPads to be updated, so the $1 gets costly quickly. However, the FREE portion should be enough to keep up going.

I love that all the details (puppets, backgrounds, and other visuals) are all covered. The work of coordinating the dialogue with puppet usage is always an issue - with a sock or an app. I am sure a huge range of students would enjoy trying something like this in the classroom.
