Book App Based on TV Special
The original 1966 Charles Schulz's TV special gets a top-notch app treatment with this adaptation from Loud Crow Interactive Inc. Filled with bells and whistles only possible in an app, kids get to experience this classic story about Charlie Brown leading his gang of unsupportive underdogs in a baseball game.
How Kids Play
Kids will tap, tilt, and swipe their way through the world of baseball as they help the Peanuts gang to pitch, bat and catch. In addition to playing baseball, kids can help Linus inflate and fill his pool, design a manager's uniform for Charlie Brown, and coach Snoopy on hanging ten on his surfboard. Each pop-up page features multiple swipes where your finger movements change the perspective and narration. Plus, this app facilitates kids' learning to read by highlighting words read and allowing kids to tap on a word to hear it spoken again.
What Makes It Good?
With the dialogue, music, and sound effects from the original TV special, a new generation of kids can cheer on Charlie Brown as they learn about friendship and responsibility. This book app creates magical summer fun.
