There are 3 sections to this book.  The Storybook, Game and Album Sticker activities.

The Storybook:
You are led on an adventure to find Boots and the words are highlighted as the text is read.  During the journey, you look for items that are red (as Boot's shoes are red) on each page.   There is interactivity in finding red objects, which are revealed by dragging your finger in the direction of the arrow, plus other little surprises on each page.  I like this as it teaches our children about detail, to look more closely at things.  Another feature is that the page will not move forward until the activity is completed and there are positive prompts to help your child to succeed all along the way.  If you do need to select one of the pages, you are able to do that too.  Simple select the purple tab, located up in the top right hand corner of all the pages.  

Boots Banana Catch Game:
How many bananas can you catch?  Can you fill the 5 baskets?  To catch the bananas you simple tap on them, some are single, others are in bunches and depending on which level they could be in a bucket & spade dropping down, or in a balloon floating up or in a birds mouth flying across the screen.  Lot of fun.

5 different levels in total, each getting ever so slightly harder.

Make your own Adventure  - Album Sticker Activity:
First of all you choose any background from the 9 pages of the story and then add a variety of stickers/images taken from the story.  As you put the stickers onto the background, it names each image in both English and Spanish - a great added touch, you can then adjust the size of the sticker if needed.  You can then take a photo which is saved within the app - My Album with the option then to  'share' the picture using the email feature (if option is on).  This is very easy to use and lots of fun.  A lovely addition to the app.

Read to me - off or on
Sharing - off or on

AppAbles Opinion
We love Dora and I am so pleased to have this addition on our iPad and it is currently only 99c.  Such a great price for hours of fun.
