A great way to educate and entertain your kids

Most apps only last a few minutes with my daughter, but this one kept her engaged for hours. She kept listening to it again and again, to the point where my wife and I had it memorized. I thought the book might be too hard for a 4 year old, but because the app read to her, it was no problem at all. I think t Rex is her new favorite word.

Great app for autistic son!

My autistic son's area of interest is dinosaurs, and he's learning to read. He only likes non-fiction and only books with realistic pictures. I have a hard time finding realistic Dino books with narrative flow. This app is perfect! We want more just like this!!! Love that when you tap pics, the narrator gives accurate Dino names, too!

Really who knew ,

Not bad...

My two year old son thinks it is great. You can touch the dinosaurs and the app will say the name. It is a book. The words are written on the screen, and when you touch each word, the app says the word for you, making it a good aid to in learning to read. On each new page, the app reads the next part of the story aloud.

It was a bit juvenile for my 12 year old daughter, who wants to be a paleontologist. She has a vast knowledge base of dinosaurs, and believes the app to be somewhat elementary for her. She thinks the app should end with Barney the dinosaur singing "I Love You, You Love Me."

It is, however a good early tool.
