Scholastic Storia Orig. 11/21/12

Hola Hola Hola My Beautifuls!  BB was asked to try out this app, but before I did I wanted to make sure it was pertinent to moi and mine.  Bueno, considering I have 4 little ones who are learning to read Babushka was happy to try it out.  Quee??  JU SO FONII!!  Ok si, La Princesa has to learn how not to fling the book first, but the boys can definitely take advantage of this app.  And speaking of taking advantage, I'm just going to paste EXACTLY what they sent me.

Download the app for free and the first five ebook downloads are free!

Sounds good verdad?  They also had sent me a video to use, but it just so happened that El Dr. had a book report due and we decided to try it out.  Naturally I couldn't pass up the chance of videotaping- especially since the stars of the video are My Eldest and El Dr.  Here's their review:

2 Thumbs Up and an ESO!!! 
You can't beat that!

FCC:   The review shown here are the honest opinions of My Eldest and El Dr.  No compensation was given to them.
