I was able to try Big Universe to create my own book. At first it does look overwhelming lol, there are so many different ways to go on here. Its like a never ending source of books and stories. I started to create my own book for Jasy and Ariel, it had letters made of animals and a border made of lions. I started on page 2 and accidently hit the back button…..it deleted. Ughh. BUT from what i did get to try lol… its fun as heck! You get to basically write your own book! So anything your child tells you can now come true! For us its princess’s, monkeys and kittys. (Yea way awesome story, you should hear it lol) but im sure for Andrea and Tina, its how dragons and monstor trucks come to life and make friends with aliens. Or just combine it and create a story filled with little kids who ride on monster trucks to capture the dragons who guarded a princess…and she had a pet monkey who rode a cat. Hey i can go on and on.. i have the imagination of a 5 yr old. HAA.
