Encinitas, CA (Vocus) November 19, 2010
Oceanhouse Media, Inc. announced the release of The Berenstain Bears Give Thanks digital book for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. The holiday favorite is now available on the App Store for only $2.99. This universal app can be used on the iPad and iPhone for no additional charge and includes special high-resolution graphics for Retina displays. This is the tenth Berenstain Bears digital book release by Oceanhouse Media since September 2010.
The Berenstain Bears Give Thanks, written by Jan and Mike Berenstain, teaches an important lesson about thankfulness and the love of family. In the story, the Bear cubs act out the first Thanksgiving complete with costumes, props and a full Thanksgiving feast. But will Sister Bear’s pet turkey play the part of dinner? The beloved Bear cubs learn about the pilgrims and are reminded of God’s many blessings!
As with all of Oceanhouse Media’s quality digital books, these interactive apps for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch are engaging and educational.
