I Love My Dad is a lightly animated and interactive app based on the popular print title, "I Love My Dad" (published in 2009), by Anna Walker. It features lovely narration and lots of fun sound effects. Even the youngest children will enjoy this simple storybook, although adults will also be touched by its short but sweet tale about a young zebra's paternal affection. Additional settings to adjust the audio, for silent reading, would be nice, but the animation & interactive elements are seamlessly integrated into the storytelling in this well-produced digital publication.
