Cool app for little engineers

My 3 year old loves this app! After we realized that his interaction was required to use it, it works fine. Remember to use the arrow keys to show more cars, otherwise it will just play music. Tap each car to open them and find out what's inside: say hi to the people in the caboose, hear the cows moo, release the water from the tanker, shake the hopper car, ring the engine's bell and blow smoke etc. Don't forget to fill up with water before pulling out. Cool app, wish it were a little bit longer with more interactive stuff (some trains are 100+ cars long). Cool app. Did crash once though.


My son LOVES this book so the app was a must when I saw it. However the app crashes every time either half way through the book or right at start up. My poor little boy gets so frustrated because he so badly wants to play with this app and can't get into it 75% of the time and when he does he can't finish it It's one thing to disappoint an adult, but how can you explain to a 1 1/2 year old that he can't play his favorite app because it's broken?
PLEASE fix this app and also allow to choose a place in the book to start instead of having to start at the beginning every time.
Once fixed this will definitely be a 5 star app.

Wa-hoo for the Choo Choo!

Great app! The animated version of the book and the accompanying games are really well done. Simple and just right. This app takes what makes the book so wonderful- beautifully vibrant, clear art- and reimagines it interactively in a way that is perfect for a young child. Easy to navigate fun for little fingers!
