Department of Transportation app for beginners!
Publisher: Shortstack

Why we love this app

Do you have a future mechanic on your hands? A pilot maybe? Or just a curious little one? Stop and Go is yet another work of art from the app developers at Shortstack. Animated vehicles appear on the screen and children are allowed to alter the environment around each thing that "goes." The voice Is easy to listen to and easy to understand.

What it teaches and how it works

This app teaches about many different modes of transportation, how they move, and what they sound like. Children also experiment with concepts such as day and night, rain or shine, and stop and go. As with the other Shortstack apps, you can select from either Spanish or English as you Stop and Go!

Why your kid won't be able to put it down

The Department of Transportation should officially endorse this app but even if they don't, your youngster sure will! This is a fun app to explore and experience together and will allow for new words and concepts to be explored together even when away from the iPad. Children will be drawn to the unique illustrations, the soothing voice, and the ability to control when the vehicles stop and go.
