Teacher Review

Dino-Store is a story app written by Roger Stedarat and Illustrated by Trade Loeffler.  The story features a young boy named Leo and his family.  At the start of the book Leo and his dad go to the supermarket to buy some eggs but they get more than they bargained for when they get them home and realize that they have bought dinosaur eggs.  Of course the eggs hatch and the family have to work out what to do with their new houseguests.

The app has two main options, “Read it myself” and “Follow along”.   In both modes readers navigate by using back and forward arrows at the bottom of the page.   Both modes also feature some really engaging interactivity with the beautiful illustrations. When the reader touches many of the images they become animated and have a sound effect that plays with them. One of the really nice aspects is that objects have a range of animation so that each time the reader touches an image, something different happens.

The narration is clear and read with great expression which makes the follow along option more interesting than some other story apps on the market.   The story is generally recommended for 4-6 year olds but is also popular with some older children, especially with those who have a particular interest in dinosaurs.
