Just the thought alone made their wish come true...

Immerse yourself in this rich, modern-day fable as Black Bear, Loon and Walleye take a wild adventure that teaches them timeless lessons. Watch, read, listen and interact with the creatures as their desire to switch their coats is granted, and the three friends learn to appreciate each others gifts, but most of all to value their own. A delightful experience for all generations and a reminder of the importance of trying new things, knowing yourself and having faith that we all fulfill our unique purposes in life.

A modern experience in the tradition of oral storytelling, the tale comes to life through the interactive animation, dramatic narration and enchanting music. Children can read and sing along, whether at home or sitting around a crackling fire beneath a starlit sky.

  • Fun and interactive!

    by MagicalUnicorn678

    I love everything about this app! The story is one of my favorites, it is so much fun to manipulate and interact with the characters, and I love the song at the end. I actually hugged my iPad after the first time I made it through the story! Thanks FlyingWord!

  • Great message! Hidden Gem

    by loveappbooks

    This book really captured both of my sons (age 7 and 10) with the story and the song at the end. As a parent I love the message - kids should know that it's always good to try new things but you should also really value your own gifts and talents. One thing I love is that it's "ok" to try new things too.

  • All around very high quality

    by marchumann

    Very high quality art, very high quality voice acting, very high quality music recording. All around, this has really good production value. Great story and great message. I would agree that the age 4+ is probably a good call. I had trouble keeping the nieces and nephews that were any younger focused once they found out you can touch and play with the story. The kids had a lot of fun with it! Looking forward to future releases.

  • Adorable

    by Steban42

    I bought this to read to my kids and I'm so glad I did. First of all, they are mesmerized by the graphics and things they can interact with in the book. Second, it led to a wonderful discussion about what unique things they like about themselves and each other. As a parent, you can't ask for more. I highly recommend this book to anyone!!

  • Love it!

    by appfan1204

    Love the story, love the illustrations, love it all!

  • Great message about life

    by Nickmania 23

    This is a perfect story that emphasizes how unique and important we are as individuals. We sometimes forget how lucky we are and do not value our own personal strengths. The story has a powerful message: be thankful for who you are, everyone has their own special talents, and never underestimate the power of relationships! Great story.
