Quality

Noa’s Stars is a top notch book for young children. In addition to the story, children will enjoy the fantastic graphics, lovely background music and may appreciate the hint button which highlights the interactive objects. Parents and children will be thankful for the features allowing for easy navigation, such as the page index. The ability to mute the narration and music is nice, too.

Education

The endearing story of Noa’s Stars is just the right length for young readers. Children will enjoy reading the story or choosing to listen as it is narrated for them. One important feature missing from the app is text highlighting.

Entertainment

There is enough interactivity to keep the reader interested, without being a distraction. A hint button is available for those wanting to see a quick glance of the interactive objects on the page. Some interactive objects do require user interaction prior to proceeding to the next page.

Story-related crafts are included in the Arts and Crafts section. They are appropriate age level crafts using items commonly found around the house.

Value

Noa’s Stars is a beautifully designed book for young children to enjoy over and over again. The arts and crafts are a great way to extend the story and are crafts that kids will enjoy making; nothing too complicated.

Child Friendliness

Parents can feel good about letting their little ones use this child safe app. Children will not have easy access to items intended for parents. A protected section for parents secures items meant for adults.

This charming book is a must download for all families with young children.
