A Dog’s Story – Free App for Apple and Android

My review: This free app is great for teaching kids to interact with

dogs safely. It contains a minimal amount of marketing from Pedigree.

My three-year-old loves to play it, although needs help with reading the 

choices offered through the adventure. A great game for kids of all ages. 

From app store:
