Oceanhouse Media, the app maker behind the digital versions of Green Eggs and Ham and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer books has put out a number of new kids book apps this summer. We’ve noticed a number of press releases from the company and put together a list of five of their new kids book apps along with the descriptions for your reading pleasure.
1. The Berenstain Bears’ Bedtime Battle: “When the sun sets in Bear Country, the birds and squirrels and ladybugs gather round the treehouse to watch the Bear Family’s great bedtime battle. It begins when Papa Bear says, ‘It’s eight o’ clock, cubs. Time for bed.’ But Brother and Sister Bear will do anything to postpone their bedtime.”
2. Penguin’s Family: “Soundprints and the Smithsonian Institution take you on an exciting adventure to the west coast of Peru where the Humboldt Penguin family teaches Baby Penguin how to survive. When penguin hatches, Mother and Father Penguin keep him warm and feed him mushed anchovies and other tiny fish. As Penguin grows older, they protect him from hungry sea birds. Now, Penguin must learn to swim. Will Penguin be safe on his own?”3. Five Little Monkeys With Nothing To Do: “When the usually rambunctious five little monkeys tell mama “We’re bored. There is nothing to do!”, mama cleverly responds “Oh yes there is” and enlists their help to clean the house for Grandma Beesie’s visit. So enthusiastically they pick up their room, scrub the floors, beat the rugs, and run to the muddy swamp to pick berries for dessert. . . but when Grandma arrives and the five little monkeys proudly take her inside, they are all in for a big surprise.”
4. Dr. Seuss’s ABC: “From Aunt Annie riding an Alligator to the Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz, Dr. Seuss teaches young readers the ABC’s through hilarious words and pictures, guaranteed to entertain any young child.”
5. Leo the Lightning Bug: “Children will identify with Leo and grasp the importance of believing in themselves as they follow Leo’s adventure to make his very own light. The other lightning bugs tease him, but with determination, motherly support, and a little luck, Leo eventually lights up in the night. Transformed by his newfound confidence, he now laughs at himself, plays with the others, and enjoys a good night’s sleep!”
