What's New in Version 1.3
Spanish version added
Wubbzy's Train Adventure is an action packed interactive book and story for the preschool set. There are many options and activities to keep your little ones entertained. The story can be read to you, a "just a book" option where you can read the story to your child without engaging the interactive features, and a novel feature of "read and play" that is truly innovative. In the "read and play" section there are prompts to explore the interactive features as well as by tapping on the individual words to hear each word separately in the story. This is great for beginning readers - they can alternate between listening and read and play to help them expand on reading skills. The graphics are bright and cheerful and there is a menu option to view videos, games, and painting. While painting, each color is announced as it is selected, and you must tap the area to be covered rather than randomly scribbling with your hand. I do wish there were options for delaying interacting or tapping until after the page was read was available. Links to more apps are secured on the main page, but would be nice if all options were on the parents page. I certainly would recommend this app for preschool families, as most kids will get maximal play value out of it, and they can play it independently.
Wubbzy's Train Adventure is a cute, happy-go-lucky adventure with lots of story interaction to engage your child. Beautiful graphics. I like the Carnival game and finding the spots to click to see what happens. There are links in the app but the user has to input a birthdate in order to access. I would prefer that this be placed on the Parents page. I do like the Parent Page which provides some discussion / comprehension questions about the story.
Fun Wubbzy story!
I love using this Wubbzy app with the preschoolers at work, especially because there is a Spanish language version available for download with the app! This app is great for working on basic concepts, answering "wh" questions, and working on early developing sounds, like "w". Cute story and another great Wubbzy app!
