The iPad version of the Parents' Choice award-winning print magazine of the same name puts an interactive face to a variety of magazine sections: Storytime, Wonder with Whizkid, Animal World, Fun and Games, and Polo. In Storytime, children read or listen to "A Night at School," a story in which the not-so-big-and-bad wolf crashes an overnight stay at school.

Wonder with Whizkid is a fabulously fun scientifically-themed section titled "Why Do We Have Five Fingers;" that describes, illustrates and compares our fingers and those of animals such as cats, fish, and monkeys. Animal World focuses on "The Stag" including information on its habitat, sources of nourishment and behavior. Fun and games includes a variety of games such as connect the dots and find the differences. And, Polo features a wordless storybook set to music as encouragement to relax and go to sleep.
