What's new in version 1.3.3

We've added helpful prompts to make sure young explorers find all the dials, levers, switches, sliders and buttons on every page! We kind of liked letting kids discover that stuff on their own. But then we realized some kids were missing some of the fun. And that isn't cool. So we pointed out the fun stuff.We've also made a bunch of little improvements. You probably won't notice. But . . . well . . . we did. So we made things better.
