a4cwsn's insight:

March of the Dinosaurs is an interactive storybook that comes alive in your hands with highly realistic 3D dinosaurs that spin and zoom at the touch of your fingers.

Another offering from Touch Press (creators of The Elements and Solar System for iPad), March of the Dinosaurs takes the reader on a journey for survival, fraught with danger – blizzards, volcanic eruptions and deadly predators. Set in the Arctic 70 million years ago, Scar, a young Edmontosaurus, embarks on his first thousand-mile migration. It is a world of extremes: hot summers with 24-hour sunlight are replaced by freezing winters with continuous night.

Follow the story page by page, either reading at your own pace or with the text dynamically highlighted and spoken by Dr Who actor Kerry Shale. Use your iPad to meet the cast: 10 realistic 3D animated dinosaurs that can be rotated and zoomed, featuring scientific fact files about each of the creatures. High definition digital animation, specially produced by the team behind the National Geographic special “Escape of the Dinosaurs”, brings alive dramatic key moments in the story.

Their first app, The Lonely Beast ABC, featured in an iPad TV commercial, was winner of the Editor’s Choice Award from Children’s Tech Review, and a finalist for the Bologna Ragazzi Digital Award at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair.
