Overall this app has a nice variety of educational component that are great for little ones.

Entertainment

Some of the best digital books have other activities in addition to the story itself. As the story moves along and the characters play their “I Spy” game, there is a new activity to explore. Activities such as a counting game, color recognition, puzzle, and so many more will help children stay engaged in the app as they read through the story.

Each activity is included within the story and might be a little distracting for some children so it would be nice to be able to access them in another way. Besides that, Li’l Spies is a very entertaining and engaging app.
