The Monster at the end of this Book by Callaway Digital Arts

#6 “The main character in this story, loveable furry old Grover comes to life through animations and activities throughout the book. I really liked that the reader could personalize their name on the bookplate. Grover acts out the various scenes in the book which include: tying the pages together, building a wooden wall and finally building a brick wall. It was easy to figure out what you were supposed to do on each page, because a yellow circle appeared with each task, something that is very good for young readers.” [Full review]

Once you have entered the recipe, you can change the serving size and the entire recipe is converted to the number of people you need to serve. I used this app on Thanksgiving and found it was very useful in sizing recipes down for my family, plus taking photos of the various creations was wonderful so I can pull up a recipe card and see what it is that I made via a photo.” [Full review]
