What it is/what you do with it: a storybook app featuring about 19 popular dinosaurs + related entries (e.g. Jurassic Period, Quadrupeds etc.).

Three reading modes: listen to the narration and follow the text, read the book yourself (or have the story read to you by a parent) and autoplay. Touch the objects on pages and their name will be displayed and read out.

What we liked: good educational value. Quality illustrations. Excellent reading options (words are highlighted when read, you can touch a word to have it read out, tap twice to repeat a paragraph, picture-word associations). Professional narration. Sounds and sound backgrounds.

What we didn't like: the pages are very static, there are no interactive elements (apart from the read-out features). The non-dinosaur entries (e.g. 'nest', 'x-ray') could be placed in a separate chapter/reference page.
