New iPhone Apps: Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? and Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree

Will kids be entertained or turned off by these two new iPhone Apps?

Oceanhouse Media has put out some very enjoyable apps including The Lorax and Dr. Seuss’s ABC and they are at it yet again. Two recent releases bring children’s literary joys to user’s smart phones yet again with more than just reading to be done. These interactive books will engage the young ones in a user’s life and help them learn new words and sounds. What are these apps all about, let’s take a look.

Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? by Dr. Seuss – Ah, the wonderful sounds Mr. Brown can do from Moo Moo to Coo Coo. Hear the sounds the Mr. Brown can do, see them leap off the screen and come to audio life. Kids can hear and see how each word is say, how each sound sounds in a very interactive tale. Have the story read to you, read it yourself or put it on auto where the pages are turned as the tale is read. The narration is solid and the overall experience is very straightforward and in line with previous Oceanhouse releases. A solid entry for a well known tale of sounds.

Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree by Eileen Christelow – Most kids have heard the tale of a group of bad little monkeys jumping on a bed but what about those sitting in a tree? In this second tale of monkeys gone bad, mama monkey takes her five little ones out for a picnic by the river only to see her little ones hang from a tree teasing Mr. Crocodile. The ending is not as gruesome as it may sound, it’s actually quite fun and the vivid artwork comes to life in the same manner as Mr. Brown with text read to or by the viewer and solid narration throughout. While not as recognized as Dr. Seuss’s works the series of Five Little Monkeys books are fun and enjoyable for kids.

Overall both of these newer additions by Oceanhouse continue the trend of solid smart phone and tablet offerings that fill a gap needed for kids these days. Interactive media that teaches and entertains without rotting the brain. Rock solid and highly recommended at about ½ the price of the print books.
