App Description

Forgotten on a side-track at a busy railroad yard, a lonely little blue caboose made friends with a little old fashioned engine. When the big Streamliner got stuck in the snow, she reminded the switchman that the old snowplow engine could clear the track in time.

Chuggy and the Blue Caboose is a part of the Auracle line from Auryn Inc. and is based on Don Freeman’s book by the same name.

Key features include
★Personalisation of picture, voice and text:
★Kids can become their own narrator or listen to their parents narrate the book.
★Interactivity allows kids to personalize the sentence, create new action words and sharpen their vocabulary skills

Features on each page
★Image and word association vocabulary builder - when an image is touched the associated word is spoken and the written word displayed.
★Karaoke effect - when a word is spoken during narration then the word is highlighted.
★Touch a word to hear it being spoken.

Three ways to read the book.
★"Read to me" - Listen to the narrated story while the text is displayed Karaoke style. After the narration finishes on a page the child can interact with objects till they are ready to move to the next page.
★"Read myself" - There is no narration but the child can touch a word to hear it being spoken aloud.
★"Auto Play" - same as "Read to Me" except the page advances automatically once the narration is finished. Useful for those long car rides when you want the child to have a complete book experience.
