The Wonky Donkey - being different can be cool

The Wonky Donkey by Kiwa Media

If you get no other apps for your special needs child, get them book apps! So much learning goes on when a book is read to a child. This quirky story is actually a song about a donkey who has special needs and has all the elements of great early childhood literature: wonderful illustrations, cheeky characters, repetition, and rhyme. Once you read this, it will be stuck in your head and you'll be sharing it with all of your friends and family. Can I just say it's refreshing to hear a "local" accent? (Local meaning southern hemisphere hehe)
