The Dream (by Swipea) is an interactive kids’ book that takes you on a journey to the Middle East and introduces the Arab culture through a story, mini educational games, craft activities, as well as 60 fun facts found throughout this application. This FREE iPad and iPhone game app includes a story about a common, hard-working father named Ahmad who lives in the Arab world. The story is inspirational and basically reveals a theme about perseverance. However, this app is much more than just a book, this particular application is part of a series called “The World Explorer Series,” a collection of activity-type storybooks with messages revolving around positive moral values and creating an appreciation for other cultures. The Dream storybook can be read to you by the narrator or read by yourself in the Fact Find mode. Besides the above mentioned story theme, there are 60 facts that kids can discover and learn about, such as a variety of objects, cities, and people, all specific to the Arab culture.
You will also find several mini games (8 total) introducing children (and their parents) to various aspects of the Arab culture to include clothing, food, music, and more. Two of the mini games come unlocked for FREE within this application, and the others can be unlocked through in app purchase. You can also purchase the full version of this application called The Dream, World Explorer Edition by Swipea – Interactive Story Book, Education Games & Activities for Kids which can be purchased currently for $2.99 and includes all mini-games unlocked. There are some extras included within this FREE app and parent information that can be found in the Parents tab. Overall, I found The Dream to be a very good kids’ storybook not only for providing a good message, but for also providing a great deal of interesting information and tidbits about the Arab culture presented in a variety of ways (story, facts, and games) making for an engaging learning experience and a better understanding of our cultural differences.
