A Story That Delights and Educates
Touch an image and the word pops up

Triceratops Gets Lost is a delightful story that also gives young readers a glimpse into a bygone world. Beautiful graphics and powerful sound effects bring to life the exciting adventures of the prehistoric age so you'll feel as if they are happening right outside your door.

The prehistoric forest can be a very dangerous place for a dinosaur, especially a young Triceratops who is left behind by his herd and suddenly finds himself alone and helpless. What will happen to him? Find out when you read the book on your Android device. Produced in collaboration with paleontologists at the Smithsonian Institution, Triceratops Gets Lost provides fascinating and accurate information about dinosaurs and the prehistoric era.

Read to Me, Read Alone, or Auto Play

The available reading options are sure to enhance your child's learning experience and overall enjoyment of this interactive book. Choose from one of the three ways to read: Read to Me, Read it Myself, or Auto Play. The Read to Me option allows your child to listen to the narrated story, highlighting the words as they are read. The Read it Myself option allows your child to read each page in the traditional form and turn the pages with a swipe. Auto Play shows the story like a movie, automatically reading and turning the pages; it's an excellent option for very young children.

Touch and Learn with Every Page Turn

To enhance learning by picture and word association, your child can touch any image on the screen and its associated word will pop up in bright, bold letters. Additionally, individual words are highlighted as the story is read. This makes it simple for children to follow along and add words to their vocabulary. With so much to offer, Triceratops Gets Lost makes for an ideal interactive learning experience.

I added this book along with the one about the T-rex for my two sons that really enjoy dinosaurs. They liked this one, not as much as the T-rex one but liked it. It's got the read to me option and they can tap on various things in the pages that they enjoy as well.

Nice app for kids that enjoy dinosaurs.
