Ice Age Movie Storybook Collection Review
Ice Age Movie Storybook brings together our favourite onscreen characters, Manny the woolly mammoth, Sid the sloth and Diego the saber-tooth tiger.
The thing I love the most about iStorytime apps is that they bring the feeling of the big screen to life in your own living room . The illustrations are overwhelming and the reader becomes immersed in the story .
We encounter thought provoking moments in the story where by the bonds of friendship and loyalty are put to the test. We see Manny risking his own life to save the life of Diego and later on we see Diego also risking his life to try and save his friends. The bond which is formed amongst the three friends is a great life lesson for children as it shows that you can make friends anywhere. You don't have to be from the same background or culture to form a close bond with someone , and once you have that kind of friendship you look out for each other no matter what.
Interspersed, of course, are many moments of pure hilarity provided primarily by Sid.
The developers have added the options of Read to me, Auto play and Read to myself to allow the reader a variety of ways to enjoy the app.
If you are a fan of the Ice Age movies then this app is a must by. My son has spent hours reading the stories over and over since I downloaded it for him. We did buy the in-app purchases and now have the entire collection. I have to say each storybook is incredible. It is hard to stop yourself from just buying one.
If you would like to buy a copy if the app right now please do so by clicking on this link iTunes. It is priced at $0.99 and Ice Age 2 , 3 and 4 are available at the cost of $2.99 each from within the app .
