Overview

This application is recommended for ages 0-4.

The #1 app for kids in many countries is now on your NOOK! Let your kids explore an AMAZING WORLD OF ANIMALS while improving their READING SKILLS. Children will love the ADORABLE ILLUSTRATIONS and REALISTIC SOUNDS! The option of included spoken names makes this app also ideal for toddlers just beginning to recognize animal pictures.
The Animal Train takes you on an exciting journey, which ranges from the exotic depths of the jungle and savanna to the more familiar farm.
Are you curious what you will encounter on this challenging trip?

YOUR TICKET ON THIS EXCITING ANIMAL TRAIN GUARANTEES:
- The entirety of 9 wonderful, colorfully illustrated settings:
(1) Farm
(2) Yard
(3) Polar Regions
(4) Savanna
(5) Desert
(6) Sea
(7) Jungle
(8) Colors 1 - NEW!!!
(9) Colors 2 - NEW!!!

- More than 40 cute animals and their sounds
- The ultimate reading and animal recognition challenge!

And what are you bound to learn through such experience?

EXPECT TO IMPROVE IN:
- Reading of written animal names!
- Animal recognition!
- Memory skills
- Fine motor skills (in toddlers)
- Increased motivation to read and learn

The learning takes place through a game activity, during which children are asked to place the animals to the train in the order their names are written (and possibly pronounced).
There are nine progressively more difficult levels of this activity as the number of the animals to be placed gets longer and the time needed to do so shorter. The motivational component is the constant praise for successful efforts and the possibility of the top score improvement --don't miss the train, answer correctly and get more and more points!
In the Settings, the game can be modified so that the tasks (the order of the animals to be placed in the train) are read aloud, and therefore the app can be also suitable for very small children, who are just learning the names of the animals!

Based on our twenty-year old experience in the development of the educational software, we made considerable effort to ensure that the design of this app is easy-to-use for this very special age category, and that the whole app is as educational and fun as possible. We hope that your children will enjoy it the same way our beta-testers did.

    Adorable app full of colorful animals

    A wonderful app with bright and colorful design. My daughter loves to play with trains and learning names of animals, so this app seems like being made just for her. She enjoys dragging animals into the train and always repeats their names. Very lovely animal app. Highly recommended!

    2 yr old

    Easy enough for my two year old. He loves putting the animals in the train cars. The only issue is that it tends to freeze the screen on my nook.

    Fun

    Love this app. Very colorful. Animal sounds are very realistic. My 2 year old loves it, loves anything trains. This app helps learn animals and colors. Sometimes while the train waits, he clicks on the different animals just to hear the sounds they make.

    Great for a learning toddler

    The 'choo choo!' was an instant hit with my almost 2 year old. We are learning animal names, sounds, and colors...which is exactly what this app targets. He definitely doesn't get the drag and drop into the train yet, but that leaves some challenge to it as he gets older. Overall, a great game that he will probably enjoy for quite some time. Easy to use for me AND him, does what it adverts, cheap app, and works properly on my nook tablet.

    Cute, but a little hard for a two year old...

    The age says 0-4, but this is a little too hard for young kids who haven't learned the basics of reading yet. Just okay graphics, too.
