  • If you had the original DOS version...

    By Jake Pranski
    This is not like that at all. The voice is different and there is zero animation. No interaction at, save for teaching vocabulary. Very sad and disappointed.
  • Wonderful book Just Grandma and Me

    By Aplifesgood
    The price for the book is okay. However, once exposed to the original and how fabulous the interactive component was, it is disappointing that with IT such as it is, it is not available. I would have easily paid $14.99 + for it, and so would many others! You would see generations purchasing this! Now, if we can just encourage Apple to quit with their incessant upgrades!!!

    Not like the original program at, it just presents like a book with none of the animations. Definitely not worth it if you liked the original cdrom for PC. In the future I will be googling more info on apps, this one felt like a bait and switch.
  • Not like old version

    By Emilysufjsoalsi
    Doesn't have the sound effects like on the computer version from the 90s. Can't click on things in the book and doesn't make sounds. I wish I could get my money back.
  • Meh

    By Parttime Traveller
    I agree with the other reviewers in that this version pales in comparison to the one we used to run on our Mac. There are some nice reading aids, but it is not nearly as interactive as the original.
  • Better than this App!

    By Luv Living Books
    If you are disappointed in this App because it is not like the original computer version you should check out all the Wanderful interactive storybooks! These are the original Living Books brought back for the iPad. You will love them!!

    By prettywoman1964
    I do not like this version of Just Grandma And Me at all!!! We bought the computer version many years ago for a child that was like a grandchild to us. We now have our own grandchildren and have been using the computer version with our granddaughter. I thought it would be nice to sit on the couch with her and let her touch the screen on my ipad and she could make the birds sing or the cow moo as many times as she wanted to!!! But not with this version! I'm not even going to let her know that I have it on my ipad! It's just like a story book.....all still pictures.....you can't interact with the story at all! I'm very much disappointed and would not have made the purchase if I had know! I don't guess we can get a refund????

    Was very disappointed in this app. Having owned the original interactive version, and having watched my daughter enjoy it for so many years on the computer (finally wore it out) could not believe the "pale version" of the original that this app presents. Although the original pictures and artwork remain, this version is nothing more than flipping through a series of still pictures in a book. None of the charm or delight of being able to touch the screen and play interactively with various creatures in the story now remains. The creativity that went into the orginal was just amazing, and was what made it such a delight and so appealing to kids. This version has been gutted to nothing more than a series of still pictures. What a shame. The story is not even well read by the child narrator. Would not have bought it if I had sampled it first. Hope they decide to fix this. This has been a classic and much loved computer story in our family for so many years. Developers, please fix this so it can be a winner again and charm a new generation!
  • Very Disappointed

    By Littlemaxjm
    I wish I had read the review before I bought this. I too thought it was the interactive version and it is not. I felt that I was misled.

    I love the broderbund interactive Living Books with Little Critter and was so excited to see them offer as an iPad app. NOPE! These are simply an ebook that will read you the story. No interaction what so ever.
