Apps: ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ Comes To Life!
The beloved story A Charlie Brown Christmas is now an interactive digital book app. There are 4 new scenes included and what’s really special is that the narrator is Peter Robbins, the original voice of Charlie Brown.
Touch the characters and objects and watch the TV show come to life. I grew up on this Christmas classic so am pleased to share it with my children. For them, it’s a whole new way to follow the story. My 3-year-old daughter especially likes this e-book. Yesterday while waiting at the dentist’s office, she read through the app on our iPad while other children in the room stood nearby and were mesmerized with it.
The digital book also features an innovative dialog system that allows users to move through the story at their own pace and hear actual character voices as each scene unfolds. The app features both “read to me” and “read it myself” modes and provides educational value by allowing any word in the book to be read aloud simply by tapping it.
Right now the 12 Days of Christmas contest is going on. Unlock certain tree decorations by solving a number of clues within the app. Winner will get an iPad2!
The PEANUTS interactive books from Loud Crow will be available across several digital channels. The company plans to make these book apps available on a number of mobile devices, including Apple’s iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, Android smartphones and tablets, Amazon Kindle Fire, and Barnes & Noble’s NOOK Color. “A Charlie Brown Christmas” is now available for download for $6.99 from various app markets including iTunes App Store and Android Market.
So basically, I love it and recommend A Charlie Brown Christmas for everyone. I’m really happy the people at Loud Crow decided to create this app! Now watch the video on the sidebar!
