Oceanhouse Media Christmas apps

Oceanhouse Media bring many different type of books apps that are wonderful and fun. Today I'm going to tell you about two different Christmas apps that are fun, cute, and wonderful for all children young and old.

Tacky's Christmas is a wonderful book about Tacky the penguin and his Christmas with his friends. Tacky's kind of the odd one out of the bunch but in this story Tacky gets to save the day with his present to all his friends. Well going along with the story you watch as Tacky becomes their tree, santa, and finally their "savior" from the hunters. Like most Oceanhouse Media books you can choose read to me, read it myself, and auto play. This book like most others of theirs also offers the ability to push pictures to have the words zoom up and be spoken as you tap around the screen. This app is great for children learning to read and offers wonderful pictures and great sound quality throughout :) Highly recommended app :)

How the Grinch Stole Christmas!- Dr. Seuss is another wonderful book brought to you by Oceanhouse Media. Most of us grew up with this story during Christmas time and have watched the movie over and over again but it never gets old. This story along with all the other wonderful Dr. Seuss books bring rhyme, love, and laughter to our homes all year round. This story in particular teaches our children about how love can keep a village alive and happy no matter what happens and that you don't need gifts to make you happy on Christmas day. This app brings back the old black and white pages with touches of red throughout that make this less colorful then some of the others but it helps keep the book true to itself. This book helps our young readers learn to read by offering the read by myself option and has where if you point to an item on the screen it will tell you what it is in zoomed out words and will speak what the word is. Highly recommended app that is perfect for all ages :)
