Oceanhouse Media, top digital book app publisher, has begun releasing their immense catalog of interactive children’s books on the Amazon Fire TV. So far they’ve released 15 book apps with many more expected to come in the next few days. Included are classic favorites like Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat and dinosaur books from the Smithsonian like It’s Tyrannosaurus Rex! Also released are several Berenstain Bears and Little Critter book apps. These apps and many more are included for free with Amazon’s child focused subscription service, FreeTime Unlimited. Oceanhouse’s book apps range into the hundreds, so expect to see a steady stream of them in the weekly new app recap posts for weeks to come.
If you still have copies of PC or Mac based CD-ROM versions of these from Broderbund’s “Living Books” series, save yourself some money and use ScummVM from the Play store. Requires root, of course. See ScummVM.org.
