Steam Train, Dream Train

Age Level: Ages 0–5, Ages 5-8
By Developer: Oceanhouse Media

The steam train has arrived and is being loaded by some very unusual workers. Busy animals fill the cars with fun things such as toys and tasty ice cream. There are dinosaur and cars loaded and ready to go, while elephants fill tanks with their trunks, and a whole lot more! All tucked in and ready to go, the animals snuggle up as the train heads to it's next destination.

The Steam Train, Dream Train is a perfect way to send your children off to their own beds at night. Each page is full of animation, bringing the story to life, with tappable words and the ability to record your own version of the story. Choose to have the story read with professional narration and highlighted words, or read it yourself. This rhyming story is sure to please.

A big added plus to me in this story book is that while narration is going, tapping on the items shows the word. Once the narration on a page is complete you will hear the word as well as see it. I don't find this feature on all apps. Due to this, you do need to turn each page, which I feel is completely worth the extra effort.

Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
