As regular readers of my blog will know, D loves to sing and she quickly engaged with the idea of singing along and following the interactive instructions.

She particularly enjoyed becoming a "star" and participating in the musical extravaganza finale!

Priced at £2.49, it’s a small price to pay for the benefits and enjoyment. http:// https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/jump-up-join-in-lions-speedy/id668580148?mt=8
