“The Amazing Train” brings a new narrative into the genre of cultural book apps for children. It introduces the cultural experience through the eyes of children in the related culture. This perception which creates empathy in the readers towards the heroes of the story, simplifies the ability to deliver to our kids the understanding that, despite cultural diversity, children in different places are all curious, mischievous, honest, sad, happy and sometimes even afraid. Understanding this can dissolve stereotypes that easily go together with the one who is different from you.

The app promotes the acceptance of people who are different from you. It is a great discussion-starter about how people are different and what makes each child special. In those days when we hear ethnocentric views regarding different cultures, a cultural relativistic message to our children has a special significance.
