    Cozmo’s Day Off by Ayars Animation is a GREAT interactive,fun story! I have 2 nephews, and I cant count how many times we’ve all listened, watched,and interacted with the story of Cozmo! Ayars Animation has raised the bar when it comes to interactive childrens books on ipod/ipad! great job!

    If you liked Cozmo’s Day off, check out Jack and the Beanstalk, the award
    winning interactive childrens app for iPad/iPhone. Jack and the Beanstalk
    is as beautifully animated and narrated as Cozmo’s Day Off. This is another
    must have app from Ayars animation for parents with children ages 3-8!
