“How the Grinch Stole Christmas” for the Droid


My three-year-old and I just watched this movie and he is hooked (and secretly, so am I…it’s one of my favorites this time of year). So, how happy am I to have found this classic for the Droid? It’s available for $3.99.

The app, which come from publisher Oceanhouse Media, is top-notch, intended to be both “engaging and educational” for young readers.

Mashable review:

There are three ways to read each book/app. If you choose to have to book read to you, the apps highlight individual words as the story is read by a professional narrator. You can also choose to read the book yourself or auto-play. When you touch the image on your Android device’s screen, the words zoom up.

These apps also include custom background music and audio, special effects and edu-taining features along with the original artwork and text of the Dr. Seuss classics.

The app is already getting 5-star reviews from parents of young kids, and several have said it works well on the Samsung Galaxy Tab as well as traditional mobile devices.
