In the newly released A Frog Thing, Frank, a frog, wasn’t satisfied doing ordinary frog things. Frank wanted to fly and he was determined to find a way.
Our Take: A Frog Thing App Review: This is a cute story. It sends a positive message that you can do anything even it seems impossible, kind of like flying. I like the illustrations too, they are very cute.
UPDATE 2019: THIS APP IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. – In Enchanted Tales: Treasure Island, young Jim Hawkins suddenly finds himself in possession of a mysterious treasure map, he sets sail for the South Sea with his off-beat friends, Biscuit the mouse and Dickens the ship’s cat. When trouble arises, the trio barely escape the pirate’s midnight mutiny as they flea to Treasure Island – where they embark on a wild, laugh-packed quest to unearth the buried doubloons before the bumbling buccaneers beat them to it!
Our Take: Treasure Island App Review: This app we were not too impressed with. When the story was read it stayed on the same image for three pages it just zoomed in an out, there weren’t different drawings for each page when turned, which made it pretty boring.
You can also read about my other Oceanhouse Media App Reviews: Dr. Seuss: Oh Say Can You Say? App, How The Grinch Stole Christmas! by Dr. Seuss and Dr. Seuss App Reviews: If I Ran the Zoo & And To Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street.
With both the apps, there are three ways that you can enjoy this book:
- ”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!
