iKids Play™ and beloved children's author and illustrator Marianne Richmond introduce the fourth book in the iKids Play iPhone application collection, Hooray for You! Based on Richmond's best-selling picture book, this celebration of individuality ("you-ness") comes to life through five fun activities in one application. Featuring playful verse and illustrations, Hooray for You! takes readers on a head-to-toe-tip journey, honoring the remarkable individuality bestowed on us all.
