The app provides children with ten objects that they can color by using the drawing tools in the app. The drawing tools include three brush stroke sizes, twelve colors, and nine virtual stamps to apply to each drawing. Children can erase part or all of a drawing at any time. Children can also include pictures of themselves or others by using the camera on their iPads. I took a picture of one of my dogs and included it in my sailboat drawing.
There are ten objects in all that a child can color in Draw Along With and Stell and Sam. The list of objects for coloring include a sailboat, a plane, a butterfly, and a group of three friends that resemble paper dolls. After a child completes a drawing he or she can hear Stella and Sam tell a short story centered around the object he or she just colored in.
