This is a fun story about a cow that makes flavored milk. Told in the first person by a child narrator, this storybook app is simple but enjoyable. When someone feeds 'Moo' chocolate one day, she makes ... chocolate milk! Soon the family is feeding her all sorts of yummy things in the hopes of having lots of delicious, flavored milk. Then one day 'Moo' stops producing anything but 'normal milk' ... that is until it is the narrator's birthday, when Moo gives ice cream!
This storybook app is not enhanced beyond narration. It has easy-to-read text and simple page turn by swiping, as well as ample settings to navigate (via a page guide). Other than that, though, this app is really basic, featuring none of the usual "bells & whistles" that young readers might expect in a book app.
Overall, this is a fun story translated into a digital format. There isn't much to the plot (nor an explanation of why "Moo" starts giving flavored milk, then stops, then gives ice cream), but it does have nice illustrations and a fun story idea. Children will enjoy reading and listening to this book. Adding a bit more embellishment to the plot or even a way to record your own narration would be the only suggestions for improvement.
All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.

A cow, named Moo, is mischievous and likes to drive around the farm in a tractor. Often, Moo is even brave enough to go beyond the farm. She likes to jump around, too. One day she found a bar of chocolate and eats it all up. The next day, the milk from Moo was chocolate flavored!
The family then gave the cow strawberries, watching Moo jump around in the fields after eating the fruit. As expected, the next day, Moo gave 'strawberry' flavored milk. The family tries to find out how Moo makes this flavored milk. After eating a selection of berries one day, the family is disappointed when only normal milk comes out ...
Finally, though, on the birthday of one of the families kids, Moo provides 'ice cream'!
