Five Little Monkeys Collection

Five Little Monkeys Collection

Have you read Five Little Monkey stories?   Do you like it?  Now they are available in apps.  Five Little Monkeys Collection #1 by Oceanhouse Media was released about a week ago.  This is the digital version of the print collection, released in 2009 for the 20th-anniversary of the Five Little Monkeys books, by Eileen Christelow.

This collection includes the following titles:

• Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed: a charming bedtime story sure to send children giggling off to bed . . . hopefully without any clever new ideas.

• Five Little Monkeys Bake a Birthday Cake: the monkeys cooking up a special surprise in the kitchen. But in the end, they’re the ones who get the big surprise.

• Five Little Monkeys Wash the Car: proves that with determination, team work, and a little bit of luck, nearly any task is possible.

• Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree: teaches the monkeys a lesson in teasing (and hiding) when Mr. Crocodile SNAPS at them with his sharp teeth.

• Five Little Monkeys With Nothing to Do: follows the monkeys as they enthusiastically scrub the house for Grandma Beesie’s visit. But amid the excitement, a few things get overlooked.

In print, the Five Little Monkeys has been a favorite of many parents, teachers & kids. In app form, the added educational features make the books more fun.

App features include:

• Picture / Word association — words zoom up and are spoken when pictures are touched.  This is one of the best features I like about Oceanhouse Media’s book apps.  It is a fun way to expand young kids’ vocabulary.

• Individual word is highlighted when readFive Little Monkeys Collection App

• Ability to tap a word to have the single word be read again

• Professional audio narration • Custom background audio for each scene

• Pages pan & zoom to accentuate the colorful, original artwork

• This ‘Universal App’ is optimized for Retina displays and the iPad

• 5 Books in 1! Switch between titles from the main menu!

There are three ways to use the app:
•  “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!

iGameMom Comment:

If the traditional books of the same title are good, the ‘Five Monkeys’ book apps are more fun than they were in print. This is a great series for kids age up to 7.  Toddlers will enjoy the auto play.  Learner reader will learn reading while enjoying the story. It is available at App Store for $11.99.

If you would like to check it out or purchase it, please use the link provided.  The cost is the same to you, but iGameMom gets a small percentage. Thanks for your support!
