"Best New Dino Themed Apps for Kids" – USA TODAY
"Ansel and Clair Jurassic and Triassic are the equivalent of 10-15 hours of TED and Khan Academy lectures with a dozen or more YouTube videos and a trip to a natural history museum thrown in for good measure. There really isn't anything to which to compare these apps. It's like getting an entire album of music for the price of a single" - SMART APPS FOR KIDS
"This latest app hits the nail directly on the head" - TEACHERSWITHAPPS

Spectacular interactions & animations, stunning visuals, puzzles & games bring Dinosaurs to life
- Allosaurus, a giant meat-eating dinosaur that was an ancestor of the Tyrannosaurus Rex
- Apatosaurus, a large Sauropod that was over 80 feet long and weighed more than 5 elephants
- Archaeopteryx, the earliest known flying dinosaur, which had both feathers and scales
- Hybodus, which was a shark-like water animal that lived during all three dinosaur periods
- Brachiosaurus or Arm Lizard, a gigantic Sauropod, which had longer fore limbs than legs
- Plesiosaurus, a marine reptile that did not lay eggs, but gave birth to live young in the water
- Stegosaurus, a popular armored plant-eating dinosaur
Science, history, geography and geology incorporated in a fun, contextual manner
- Why did the Apatosaurus swallow stones?
- Did modern birds evolve from the flying dinosaurs?
- Why were there more plant-eating dinosaurs than meat-eating dinosaurs?
- Were there polar ice caps during the Jurassic?
- How can you tell the age of a fossil? How do you know where to look for fossils?
- Why are you more likely to find fossils in sedimentary rocks and not in igneous or metamorphic rocks?
- How did new pine cones grow if there were no pine flowers?

Paleontologist in the making
Fantastic app…..My 4 year old son is fascinated by dinosaurs and has everything from clothes to utensils with a dinosaur theme. I was searching for an appropriate educational app so that he can learn some facts about them and am really excited to have found this one.
Wonderful snippets of information about the various dinosaurs from this period. I have been unable to get my iPad back as he is absolutely entralled and he is already reeling of facts about the Stegosaurus and Apatosaurus. I couldn’t believe that he could pronounce the words let alone tell me a thing or two about them.
Was glad to learn that they have another app about dinosaurs. Can't wait to get it too.
Great Educational App
My daughter is a big fan of the Ansel & Clair series of apps. We have them all and they are a great source of education and entertainment for her. This app in particular focuses on prehistoric dinosaurs. My daughter learned about some of the different types of dinosaurs that existed. She names quite a few of them by just looking at pictures. She just loves the part where she has to put all the dinosaur fossils together. All in all, a great educational app.
This app is a standout - only one I have from Cognitive Kid but the others are going in my iTunes wish list now. Definitely not your typical dinosaur app. My five year old son loved going on the fossil dig and unearthing a dinosaur fossil and traveling back in time to the time of the dinosaurs. The delivery/narration is very informative but done in a very interesting way to hold attention. Don't hesitate to buy if you want an app that is more than ABCS and an ebook!
