A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving is another wonderful classic that has evolved into an interactive storybook app that children will love. With the wonderful characters we have grown to love (Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and Woodstock) this story teaches children a bit about Thanksgiving and sharing with friends with a fun Charlie Brown twist.

In addition to the wonderful background music and narration, this app is full of fun interactive bits throughout that will keep children engaged as they read through the story. The developers have done a nice job of making it easy to use for young children as there are arrows to indicate where to tap or pull down to reveal an interactive piece. The simple swipe function is also utilized when moving through the pages which makes this very easy to use.
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving is all about sharing and spending time with friends which is a great lesson for little ones to learn. The story also allows children to practice their reading skills as they follow along with the ‘read to me’ or ‘auto play’ options and text highlighting. A great story for children of all ages.
Over the years we have grown to love Charlie Brown and his friends as they celebrate the holidays and this classic story is another beautiful way for parents to share one of their favorite characters with their children. The story itself is highly entertaining with fun sound effects, narration, and music to go along with it. The developers have also included a fun game within the story that allows children to explore the illustrations in order to find all the hidden leaves as they follow along. This creates a bit of fun in addition to the story to help children stay engaged. There are also other interactive images that children can tap through which provides a bit of fun and wonder.
Priced at just under six dollars this app is on the higher end of the budget for most storybook apps. The quality is very good and the narration and voices that can be found in the Charlie Brown cartoons make it pretty nostalgic and some parents may not mind the price. It seems there would be more activities at a higher price point.
Parents will be happy to know that this app is great for children of all ages. The ‘read to me’ and ‘read to myself’ options are great for pre and early readers and the text highlighting makes it easy to follow along. The easy to use interface includes various arrows and pull-down tabs to move through the app which is great. Parents will also be happy to know that social media links or ‘other apps’ buttons are included in a protected parents area that is located on the main page or on the very last page of the story.
This is another wonderful Charlie Brown classic that has been turned into an interactive storybook app for children of all ages. Very well done!
