Review of Product:  The 6 year old was so excited to get this Cars 2 Read & Race app downloaded so he could start playing.  He said it is a lot of fun and he likes doing it.  His favorite part is that at the end of the story he can make his own race car and challenge the other cars to a race.  He enjoys reading more about topics that interest him and Cars 2 is definitely something that interests him! I feel good about having him do something educational and reading-oriented and he likes the app – what more can you ask for?
