When I saw the press release of this app from Oceanhouse Media, I immediately requested for a promo code to review it as I have previously reviewed the 'Planes', 'Boats' and 'Trucks' version with Ben recently and we loved it! To be honest, the first time I reviewed these Byron Barton app, I was already looking forward to seeing the 'Trains' version! Anyway, my review as below...

Description from the product page:
"Play with freight trains, electric trains and many other types of trains in this animated picture book about transportation. Move trucks, workers, tools, and other objects around the page and tap pictures to learn their names. Realistic sound effects and brightly colored illustrations will delight young readers and keep them coming back for more!""
* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and the words pop out to tell you what it is!
* I like that we can move the objects on each page! It gives you a sense of control and being imaginative to move the objects around!
* There are some pages with beautiful illustrations that caught my boy's attention, such as the one below where the train moves through the night and the light shining brightly in front of the train reminded him of his torchlight (which he loves playing with at the moment)
* I used the opportunity to teach my 3.5 years old boy using the page below on the importance of taking and waiting for our turns. That everybody must be patient and give way to others.
* In summary, another great app that is fun and entertaining especially if your kids are into trains!
