Big Yellow Taxi by CJ Time, based in California, is universal interactive song based storybook about a big yellow taxi which drives up and down the avenue. There are two different modes, one is a straightforward sung narration of the songbook with illustrations and the other allows children to color in pages while the story is sung and read. This songbook is based upon the original song “Yellow Taxi.”
This is a great app for parents and children to sing along with because it has a nice catchy beat. The illustrations are simple and the words help children to read since they are highlighted as part of song. It also features the individual sounds of the street such as a scooter, feet running along the street, a police siren and a horse.
I would like to see additional elements added such as the ability to touch different items in the pictures and have interaction as well as individual coloring pages for children. I’d like to have an option for turning off the advertising at the end, because children could end up in iTunes making a purchase by mistake. I’d also like the option of viewing the app without the song narration, so that we could see each of the pages and practice the words.
The song in this app, “Yellow Taxi” is part of the “FUNdamentals” Sing ‘n Read Storybooks available by CJ. It is suited for all ages with a high energy family friendly song based storyline.
Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.1.3 or later.
Cost: $1.99 US | UK | AU
