Kids can scroll through a virtual train with a train car for each letter of the alphabet. There are 26 interactive dinosaurs throughout the app and their corresponding dinosaur letters. Kids can interact with the dinosaurs by touching and feeding them, as well as x-raying them. Each dinosaur has lots of fun and interesting facts to discover as well (over 50 dinosaur facts total)…complete with narration from Mr. Conductor! The highlighted words in the app are a great way for kids to learn and build beginner reading skills. The app is available in both English and Spanish. I love that the app is very simple to use, it features touch, swipe and tilt controls that even younger children can use easily. In addition to the dinosaur alphabet train, there is a dinosaur index that allows kids to build science inquiry skills, by allowing them to practice sorting and classification. I want to mention that the app is $1.99 to download, but also features additional dinosaurs packs available through in-app purchasing; some of which include: Big Dinosaurs Pack (featuring T Rex), Carnivore Pack, and many more!
I really love the Dinosaur Train A to Z app! I think that this app would be great for kids who have an interest in dinosaurs or life science. I would definitely recommend this app to parents of young children, I will be playing it more with my son for sure!
Disclosure: I received a free copy of this app for review purposes.
