Disclosure: I received some of the above mentioned books from Ocean House Media free for review on my blog. Any opinions expressed in this post are my own and not influenced by the company or free product provided.


  1. Hi Erica!

    Great pics – we really love the Oceanhouse Media app versions of Seuss too. And they are such a great deal, particularly when you think the hardcovers are at least $9 each (and my kids go through books very quickly!) The Beginner sets are a particularly awesome value, and they include all those wonderful early literacy features like word-by-word highlighting and tapping specific words to hear them read!

    My girls really like the 3D pop-up books too, but we don’t have the ladybug or alligator apps yet – I’ll have to check those out, thanks for the recommendation.

  2. I was wondering if you r anyone else knows of an app that narrates quality children’s books for free? Or how to get audiobooks for free? I noticed that these are all around $5.00 which seems pricey to me. I am looking for ages 2-6. Thanks!

  3. I forgot my other question…is there a way to organize all of your books? I only have a few but feel like my kids are overwhelmed and can’t find what they’re looking for. I only see this problem getting worse as our collection grows. Thanks!

  4. Perhaps this falls in your category no matter if your child is an advanced reader or struggling a little Try . I use the song here every day with my kids. They can read the words and sing the educational songs. They especially are proud of being able to sing the entire Periodic Table of the Elements by memory. We’ve learned all of the spelling rules in the English language, history and more. Scientists are saying the easiest way to learn to read is to read the words you are singing because so much of the brain gets coordinated, turned on and organized. I hope you enjoy it! Acadamiacs is an AWESOME resource for homeschooling families!

  5. Hi Erica,

    Thanks a lot for this post, it’s really useful! I have myself reluctant readers at home and it’s always complicated to get them to read daily… I’m going to have them try the 3D books, which look awesome! FOr my older one (10), I started using an app called News-O-Matic, You might have heard of it, it’s pretty much a daily newspaper for kids. They publish new articles every day about a lot of different things, my daughter really likes it. I finally got her to read daily, and she’s the most reluctant reader in the universe!

    Thanks a lot for the tips, and keep up with the great work, your blog is awesome!


    Alice B.
