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 if it seems impossible, kind of like flying. I like the illustrations too; they are very cute.
UPDATE 2022: THIS APP IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE
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 escapes 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: We were not too impressed with this app. When the story was read, it stayed on the same image for three pages. It just zoomed in and 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!
