New Oceanhouse Media iPad apps!

With the holidays right around the corner, I thought I would highlight some of our favorite new Oceanhouse Media apps that are available!

Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now!  ($3.99)

We just LOVE Dr. Seuss in our house, so this classic is a great omBook that my kids really enjoy!  Especially for my 5 year old, the vocabulary and highlighted words really enhance letter and sound learning.  Plus this is just a really silly and fun story!

 The Berenstain Bears go on a Ghost Walk ($3.99)

Again, authors that we just adore, in a format that is easy to use and super interactive!  This omBook was obviously enjoyed this week of Halloween, but it's a cute "scary" story that helps take the creepy out of the Halloween holiday.  This is also available in the Google Play store and the Amazon app store for Android!

 Picture Me Trick or Treat ($1.99)

Such a simple but CUTE app that allows you to either take pictures or use pictures from your photo library to "try on" a variety of costumes!  My girls' favorites are the scarecrow and the puppy!  I love how they can choose which pictures to fill the book, and they have so much fun seeing us all in goofy costumes!  This would be a great app for babies too!  If you love the Halloween themed one, there is also more great Picture Me apps available!!

Another Dr. Seuss favorite of ours!  We love that you can record your own narration (Grandma read this for us and now we can listen to her every night!) and I love that the words zoom and help us practice letter recognition and sounds.  Another super cute omBook!

Another app that is available on the Google and Android platforms, we just adore this sweet story that is about loving who you are!  If you haven't read the tale of the square pumpkin, I highly recommend this!  I love the illustrations too!

 We also have downloaded the Dr. Seuss Bookshelf, which is a great way to organize your books in one place, and you can also easily find out about sales and new releases!  There is also a newly released OMBookshelf that does the same thing with your favorite Berenstain Bear apps, Little Critter, and more from Oceanhouse Media!  Both apps are free, too!

What are your favorite new apps?

Disclosure:  In exchange for my honest and personal review of these apps, we received a complementary download from Oceanhouse Media.
