Five Little Monkeys wash the car is an e-book / audio book and is published by Oceanhouse Media.
This book gives you the options of reading the book yourself, having the read to you (and you control the page turns) or the complete book read to you automatically. The application also adds extra interaction by touching something on the screen the name appears in print and word is spoken.
The story is by Eileen Christelow and is an original tale based on the five little monkeys (of bed fame) and their effects to help their mother sell the family car. The tale is written in rhythm.
This book is for kids and adults alike.
On the upside:
- Interactive with the book adds to the “re-readability” of the book.
- Universal for iPad and iPhone
- Nicely drawn and animated
On the downside:
- No page selector to jump into the story to your favorite bit of the book.
Overall, the book is a nice little story and my two children enjoyed the tale and the pictures. It is another quality product from Oceanhouse Media. If you have not tried an Oceanhouse book yet, then this or one of their Dr Seuss books would be a good start.
