https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/sarah-hines-stephens/beans-night/This is especially gratifying and meaningful to all of us who are doing book-apps, because it is demonstrating the recognition of book-apps as literature. In the book world a STAR from Kirkus is highly sought after, so to get one for an app feels especially good. Best line: Not as chewable as the originals, but the enhancements are expertly integrated rather than just tacked on and will welcome rather than overwhelm the target audience.I also love it that Carisa Kluver at Digital Storybook is touting the value of book-apps as literature. Here is a quote from her Bean's Baby review: When reading this book app with a young child, parents and caregivers can expect the minimal use of 'bells and whistles' to help kids focus on the main elements of the simple story. Books like this, in digital or print, are the backbone of building early literacy and for that reason alone, I highly recommend this title. - See more at: http://digital-storytime.com/review.php?id=835#sthash.HS0VwNoh.dpuf
Wonderful accomplishment Anna! Kirkus is very stingy (and rightfully so) in their star awards. That was my favorite line too!
