Three new eBook titles, a series of The Berenstain Bears titles, have hit the App Store this week. The titles are: The Berenstain Bears Say Their Prayers, The Berenstain Bears Go To Sunday School and The Berenstain Bears and the Golden Rule.
Oceanhouse Media – publishers of the superb and popular Dr. Seuss eBooks for iOS – are the joint publishers of this new series – which bodes very well for the quality and charm we can expect in this series.
Here’s more detail on these new eBooks and their features:
New features only available in this interactive eBook for your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch include professional narration, background audio and enlarged artwork for each scene.
To promote reading in young children, individual words are highlighted as the story is read and words zoom up when pictures are touched. By combining the original text and artwork with features that entertain and promote reading, this e-book appeals to readers of all ages.
Three ways to read this eBook:
★ "Read to Me" — listen to the narrated story with words highlighted as they are read
★ "Read it Myself" — read the book in its traditional form
★ "Auto Play" — plays like a movie, automatically reading and turning pages. Great for younger children!
★ Picture / Word association — words zoom up and are spoken when pictures are touched
★ Professional audio narration
★ Custom background audio for each scene
★ Pages pan & zoom to accentuate the beautiful, original art of the Berenstains
No less than 6 of Oceanhouse’s Dr. Seuss eBook titles have hit the Number 1 spot for paid books in the App Store – a very well-deserved track record of success.
My daughter and I are looking forward to trying these new titles out as bedtime story material this weekend.
You can find all three new Berenstain Bears titles in the App Store now. All are priced at just $2.99 and are universal apps that will run on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.
