Astrid and Siri: A Girly App

Astrid and Siri is a very nice FREE ipad only app if you have young daughters or granddaughters. It's not perfect, but fun for the girly girl. The illustrations are in a gorgeous Scandinavian design. Very detailed somewhat like Jan Brett but in muted colors. The animation is charming but not sophisticated. There is interaction on every page. There is way too much giggling and animal sounds, otherwise the story is unusual and fun. There is both a read to me and read to yourself section. Words are highlighted as read. Music can be off or on. The last page is a fashion page where the reader can change Astrid's outfit. Published by Artic Star. (free) (aa)
