School Library Journal review our Goldilocks and Little Bear app

It’s been a couple of months since we released our sixth fairytale app, Goldilocks and Little Bear, and we’ve been absolutely thrilled by the response it’s received.

As well as fantastic support from the App Store, it’s also been the recipient of incredible reviews from, amongst others, Tech with Kids (who awarded the app 5 stars), Children’s Technology Review (who gave the app a 100% rating and an Editor’s Choice Award), The Horn Book, The Observer, Yahoo, and more.

And Goldilocks and Little Bear has just received a fantastic review from School Library Journal! We are so pleased that school and librarians have enjoyed the app – it’s wonderful to hear that it’s being used in schools. Lalitha Nataraj for School Library Journal writes: “Nosy Crow’s modern retelling of “Goldilocks” adds charm and remarkable depth to the classic tale … Readers will have lots of fun playing hide-and-seek with Little Bear, helping Goldilocks pick fruit, and if they choose, using the microphone and camera. … The original music, composed by Steve Burke, is a delightful addition to the production. Vivid art, seamless animation, and a slight parallax effect that adds visual depth, are other standout elements. A story sure to be revisited time and again.”
