Transportation and Early Learning concepts animate this app ...

Like a bright, colorful board book, this app gives toddlers and preschoolers the chance to match early learning concepts to images of fun vehicles. In animated scenes, young learners see and hear images for concepts that include sounds, words, colors, shapes and numbers. Solidly made with ample setting for navigation and controlling sound, this app is easy enough for the youngest child to navigate.

The app is lightly animated and interactive, too. Tapping on most of the vehicles brings a quick reward of sound effects, a change in the animation and verbal reinforcements. I found the narration a bit too "bright and shiny" sounding for my tastes, but I think it hits just the right note for the toddler set.

The upbeat background music is on a short loop but is otherwise quite enjoyable. Young readers will appreciate the nice-sized, easy-to-read font and simple, arrow-style page turning. Parents should be warned that for an app aimed at young children, this one has a lot of ways to accidentally leave the app, from links to the AppStore, Email, Facebook and more. Turning off wifi on your device whenever a child is not closely monitored would be wise with this app.

There isn't any story for this title, more like an exploration of early learning concepts with a transportation theme. I wouldn't recommend this book for bedtime reading - it is not a quiet book by any means. Overall, though, this title is really appealing to its target audience, with illustrations that are as charming as they are simple. Colorful geometric images, an intuitive interface and a cachophony of sounds and sights are sure to delight the target age group.

All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.
