What It Is
Little People Flower Power Interactive Storybook follows Mia as she embarks on her first day of preschool at Little People Place. Mia's friends Eddie, Sofie, Koby, and Tessa are also attending school there. As Mia's friends show her around, they let her pick up the class flowerpot. But the flower begins to wilt, and together, Mia and her friends must discover how to make the flower happy again. The book is narrated by singer-songwriter and children's TV star Genevieve Goings. It has two modes: Read to Me and Read it Myself. These modes allow children to hear Genevieve read the book aloud, hear a parent read it aloud, or read it themselves. Each page also has interactive points that kids can touch to further explore within the story or choose their own adventures during the story.

What To Be Aware Of
This app is compatible with the iPad running iOS 4.3 or later.
There are buttons on the homepage for downloading additional Fisher-Price apps. If a child taps on one of these buttons, a screen pops up asking parents to enter a three-digit code. But the code is provided, and kids could easily type it in themselves. Once the code is entered, the Fisher-Price website opens and shows a list of all the available apps. Clicking on one again asks parents to enter a three-digit code, and that code is provided. At that point, the iTunes store opens, and if kids know their parents' Apple ID password, they could end up downloading another app. Some of the apps are free, but others are not. Going through so many steps might deter young kids from making a purchase, but we wanted to point out that the iTunes store is potentially accessible to kids from within the app.
