The 7yr. old in my house gave it two thumbs up! The fairies were a big hit. I enjoyed the fact that it had the feel of a game which made the learning experience fun. The interactive questions helped to make her relearn what she had read, making sure she retained the knowledge.
It’s a great product that will hold any fairy or dessert lovers attention and teach them in the process.
