Full Review:

Peter may be a little boy, but he has a big imagination! This interactive storybook’s title character has a new toy boat that transports him to a beautiful dream world, full of whimsy and songs all seamlessly woven into a narrative that’s made for cuddling up to.

In Peter’s Dream, the stunning illustrations come to life with interactive surprises on every page. Tap Peter’s teddy bear for a sing-a-long—including lyrics—or poke his boat for a mini-game adventure, where players must dodge sea creatures and other obstacles on the high seas, en route to Treasure Island. This charming story allows users to customize a “read to me” or “let me do it myself” experience, and focuses on core vocabulary for the preschool and kindergarten sets. Karaoke-style word highlighting encourages budding readers to follow along, promoting new word recognition, comprehension and pronunciation skills. There’s also plenty of rhyming and repetition sprinkled throughout that allows children to familiarize themselves with challenging new words.

Between interactive surprises and educational benefits, Peter’s Dream is the perfect app for engaging and educating children—and is bound to quickly become an eBook that no child wants to put down.
