Triceratops Gets Lost


Available in the App Store

Like all omBooks – and there are many – Triceritops gets lost is a great straight up ebook for kids. The illustration and narration are very well done and professional. The story is fun, and generally, a worth while ebook, especially for children interested in dinosaurs.

App features include:

  • Read to Me
  • Read to Myself
  • Auto Play
  • Text highlighting
  • Picture / Word interactions on each page

What’s Great
I love that Triceratops Gets Lost gives children a traditional linear reading experience that’s digitally enhanced with features such as audio, text highlighting and vocabulary builders. I also love that it’s a universal app, which means that it is designed to work and look great on both the iPhone/iPod and iPad. Lastly, I love that the app is a partnership with the Smithsonian.

Where are the extras?
I have said this before, but I will say it again, where are the extras? Although I love the digital version of books, I expect – and I think many parents do – fun extras like games and coloring pages, especially for this age group.

Bottom-line
Another great eBook from omBooks especially for dinosaur fans, but don’t expect any games or other fun extras.
