Tacky goes to Camp is an e-book / audio book and is published by Oceanhouse Media.
“Tacky and his fellow penguins are off to summer camp in Nice Icy Land to enjoy themselves while Rock Hopping, Line Dancing, and playing Capture the Ice Cube. One night, they gather around the campfire to sing, eat s’mores, and tell scary stories. But after going to bed, something straight out of one of their scary stories pays the sleeping penguins a visit. Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly, and Perfect think they should high-tail it out of there, but Tacky has some ideas of his own.”
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 book a tale of a nice, but lazy Penguin who goes to summer camp with his friends. Tacky is not as prepared as the others and messes a few things up, but it all works out in the end.
This book is good for adults or kids.
On the upside:
- Interactive with the book adds to the “re-readability” of the book.
- Universal for iPad and iPhone
- Nicely drawn
On the downside:
- No page selector to jump into the story to your favorite bit of the book.
Overall, this is a very good book with an enjoyable little story. My kids liked it and that is the main thing. Well worth a look if you are looking for a fun audio/ebook for your children.
