Wow, an excellent find for language therapy!
This is wonderful for teaching figurative language and word choice, and it allows you to collect data for multiple students! The sample story is charming and funny, as Jude Sky goes through his morning confused about all the odd things happening- for example he gets out from under the "bed" instead of the "covers", or even sillier, he puts a cup up to his ear, instead of his mouth. The child taps on each section in blue to choose the correct word to complete the sentence, and then it is illustrated again, rewritten, and the correct phrase is spoken out loud as well. The child can also tap on figurative language highlighted in blue, and choose the correct meaning from three choices given. I look forward to trying another book in the app soon! One thing I'd like to see addressed is the audio for the sentences. If I tap on an image on the page (there are some hidden hot spots with audio labeling), the narration cuts out for the sentence on that page, and I'm not sure if there is a way to replay it- I tried tapping it again and nothing seems to help. It sounds like an easy fix though. Thanks for a wonderful tool to use with my students!

Great
The illustrations are awesome and the story really engages my six year old. This app is certainly worth a shot.
