Stella and Sam's nighttime adventure

Backyard at Twilight is the newest Stella and Sam app. In another charming story, Stella and Sam spend a night in the backyard, chasing insects and searching for the Night Giant.

Activities consist of bug hunts, firefly pictures, and connect-the-stars. 

A minor quibble is the missed learning opportunity in the connect-the-stars game. Instead of polar bears and unicorns, actual constellations could have been shown, thus providing a subtle lesson in astronomy. However, for small children, Stella and Sam apps are still perfect.
