When you first load the Puss in Boots app, you will be prompted to choose either to have the book read to you and your child, or you can read the book app on your own. When you choose to read book app own your own, you simply turn the virtual pages of the book by tapping on the right hand bottom corner arrow on the screen. To go back to the previous page you can tap on the bottom left hand corner arrow on the screen. On the upper left had corner of the screen there is a house icon which will take you back to the main page screen. The upper right hand corner has a musical note symbol which can be used to turn on and off the background music. There will be pages where there are text from the fairy tale story line, and some pages where the virtual book will open up and become a 3D pop up book and have an interactive screen where you and your child will help Puss in Boots out by doing various activities such as hunting and finding food, and so on.

If you decide to go with the “Read To Me” option, the premise of the app is the same just that the text of the story line is instead read aloud to you. You can also get a better sight of the pop up screen by shifting the device so that the screen will slightly move to the right and left, or up and down for an aerial view.
