BEST NONFICTION APPS AND E-BOOKS OF 2013 FOR KIDS - Kirkus reviews
All kids like dinosaurs, right? Well, mega-mammal Meg Atherium wants kids to know that dinosaurs weren't the only super-interesting, super-sized creatures in prehistoric times; in fact, giant mammals like saber toothed tigers, woolly mammoths, and 20 ft. tall land sloths (megatheriums) once dominated our planet. Meg thinks these massive mammals of the Pleistocene epoch deserve some long overdue publicity, so she’s spearheading a campaign to replace all those over-exposed dinosaurs (in movies, on TV shows, in picture books, on lunch boxes . . .) with the mega-mammals from her own (very-important) time.
•Every page is interactive
•“Read to Me” - a voice over reads each page of the story
•“Read Myself” - read each page yourself
"Perhaps it's time to chime in on her rallying cry: "Boycott dinosaur lunch boxes! No more dinosaur books at story time!" As if--but she makes a strong case. (iPad informational app. 6-8)" - Kirkus Reviews

Excellent App for Kids
This app operates on multiple levels. My 2nd grader listens intently to the content, and my toddler likes the interactive objects. Touch/click anything - it'll probably react.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
