There has been a trend of bed time stories since days I don’t even remember. I don’t know if they help you to see beautiful dreams in the night but since I’ve also passed through this, all I can say is that it keeps you thinking about something you haven’t seen with your eyes and this suspense is the actual beauty of this game. But not just bed time stories, we often read many stories in our text books in schools and they contribute towards the major part of our learning. While some of these stories like Cinderella have been very popular, there are many others that can be included in the list of the classics. Today, I’m going to tell you a story about a band and their musical journey. So all kids out there, want to be a part of it? Who knows, maybe you get to tell this story to your children as well!

So I’m talking about the new iOS app called Monster Jam that has been developed by Michelle Anaya. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 4.3 or any later version of the OS. This is a storybook mainly for children in the age group of 3-8 years.


The story revolves around a musical band. The band is working hard to achieve success and has a great passion for music. Then the moment they were waiting for comes and they are given a chance to perform at the annual Monster Jam. This event is the biggest of their lifetime and they must give their best performance and make the crowd go bizarre to make it big. But life isn’t that easy, is it? The lead singer loses her voice and it’s like the showstopper gets her ankle sprained right in the middle of a fashion show.

Now, the actual story starts unrolling. The band hosts auditions looking for the replacement of their lead singer and you know that where auditions are, there is a massive crowd. So there are lots of auditions    and lots of funny elements as expected. Amidst all this conversation, you find your role as a co-guitarist or a co-pianist while the band is playing. You can even play whole of the band. Also, there are games like tic-tac-toe with a musical taste. So there is lot of stuff for you to check out.

When you’re designing a storybook, characters and backgrounds are the most important of the things because they attract the children most. I must say that the designers have done a decent job here both with the cute characters and stylish backgrounds. Overall, it’s a perfect storybook for children where they can enjoy the story as well as play with the band.

The app is available for $2.99 and it’s nothing compared to what you are being offered. So go for this one!
