Gigi and Frank is a series of enchanting, interactive stories about an adventure-loving giraffe and a timid frog. As the two friends set off on adventures, they always need help with a problem. The stories encourage kids not only to delight in the wander of fantasy, but to solve problems that develop Kindergarten and 1st grade reading and math skills.

My daughter and I absoltely love this app. Of all the other apps I downloaded, this is the only one that she played over and over again. I enjoy hearing the giggles of my daughter every time she plays this app. Looking forward to more Gigi and Frank books.

My little brother loves these books and reads them so often every day that he knows each page by heart. He had been begging me to purchase more, but I already have all of the books. You have done a fantastic job putting together the books, and the effort really shows through. I have gifted and recommended this app to many of my friends who also have younger siblings. I also posted it on my facebook page. Please please please make more books as soon as you can!!!!

A darling interactive chapter story about two unlikely best friends. Kids will love solving simple but fun riddles to help them in their difficult quest. This is a nice, long story and very good value for the money.

The Birthday by BookBoing is an application that your kids (ages 4 – 7 years) will really enjoy. Kiana listens to her copy so much that she has it memorized it… Kiana especially liked the sound effects and laughed hysterically throughout the story.

I love your concept.....there are not many kids games like this one.....I even enjoy it maybe as much as my 6 year old ......keep up the good work

In Gigi & Frank: The Birthday, Frank can’t figure out what in the world to get Gigi for her birthday. But when he finally thinks he's figured it out, what happens when the present is all wrong?

The answer to that question is up to your kids. Gigi and Frank: The Birthday is a new kind of storybook. It’s interactive. It’s educational. And it’s double the fun. When Gigi and Frank get into trouble, (which they somehow always seem to do) your kids help them out to move the story along. And when kids have trouble figuring things out, the narrator gives hints to help them out.

In Gigi and Frank: The Birthday, kids work on developing the following concepts:

• abstract thinking
• problem solving
• counting objects
• listening comprehension
• number recognition
• following patterns
• determining relative location of objects
• emotional IQ

The Gigi and Frank apps feature:

• Beautiful, original illustrations
• Interactive pages that bring the story to life
• Narration by a Sesame Street voice over actress
• Extremely easy navigation tailored for small fingers
