Come to the Grand Parade of the International Banana Festival! Join the noisy crowd watching a police car roll past, its siren blaring. Watch a drill team march along, a festival princess waving to the crowd, and people in banana bonnets walking by. Hear the music of a marching band, the clang-clang of a fire engine, and the toot-toot-puff-puff of a little train. Dance along with the Latin band and pretend to zoom around in tiny cars with the clowns! 

This app is $3.79.

One of my favorites.  Probably one of the best examples of a fully interactive reading experience packed with Games, Movie Clips, Coloring Pages, Sing-along Tunes, and Surprises on every page.  Hear the story read aloud, record your own narration, or explore at your own pace.  This is the first out of the 3 books based on the movies, and free.  I've read reviews on the others that aren't so great, so beware before you part with your money.

This app is free.

Read about the adventures of two little girls building a tree house.  They are from different ethnic backgrounds with multi-cultural friends. The books have been written to promote the acceptance of diversity, sound values and the learning of life skills. “We may look different but we feel the same.”

If you enjoy this story there are plenty of other stories following the pair, which are available from the iTunes store separately.

This app is $3.79

 

greeneggsham

This timeless Dr. Seuss classic has been delighting readers since 1960. Sam-I-am never gives up trying to convince his friend that green eggs and ham are a tasty treat. He tries everything - in a house, with a mouse, in a box, with a fox, with a goat, on a boat - to no avail. Then finally, finally his friend caves in... and tries them. And guess what? "I do so like Green Eggs and Ham!"

The book is interactive, with touchable works and pictures, and you can record your own naration.

This app is $4.99.

We still love real books in our family, but there are some exceptional interactive books on the app store, and this is one of them.  The app turns an already amazing children’s book into a fun adventure!  There are lots of items to touch, pull, and turn, move or tilt to see what happens.  The narration is clear and expressive, but the app still gives you the change to read the story yourself.

This app is $4.99.
