Dinosaur eBook App for Preschool Boys
This is a cute rhyming iPhone/iPad/iPod ebook app by StoryBoy.net that my 5-year-old son really liked. He went through a serious dinosaur phase when he was three and has since moved on to Pokemon, Bakugan, Ben 10, and now Avatar: The Last Airbender so I was pleasantly surprised when he opted to read this very simple ebook instead of playing his usual Angry Bird game. I think this ebook brought back fond memories of that time.
There is a small amount of animation in the app where the dinosaurs move across the page but mostly this is a simple story of just a single sentence per page. I don’t love the font choice but then I am picky about fonts and my son is not. The narration sounds like a dad reading which is appealing to boys whereas I like a professional actor/narrator voice. Nevertheless, at 99 cents, this is well priced and if your child opts for ebook instead of a game, that always make mom happy!
