Little Critter and his grandmother decide to spend a day at the beach! Little Critter is a good helper, even at the beach. When his grandmother's hot dog falls in the sand, he washes it off in the ocean. He promises to blow up the inflatable sea horse but needs a little help in the end. The joys and mishaps of a special summer day with Grandma are all brightened by Little Critter's sunny disposition!

Mercer Mayer's Little Critter stories, which address all the major issues of growing up, are perennial favorites of parents and children.

New features only available in this interactive omBook for your Android device include professional narration, background audio and enlarged artwork for each scene. Â 

To promote reading in young children, individual words are highlighted as the story is read and words zoom up when pictures are touched.Â By combining the original text and artwork of author Mercer Mayer with features that entertain and promote reading, this omBook appeals to readers of all ages.

Three ways to read this omBook (Oceanhouse Media digital book):
★ "Read to Me" — listen to the narrated story with words highlighted as they are read
★ "Read it Myself" — read the book in its traditional form
★ "Auto Play" — plays like a movie, automatically reading and turning pages. Great for younger children!

Additional Features:
★ Picture / Word association — words zoom up and are spoken when pictures are touched
★ Find the creature mini-game
★ Professional audio narration
★ Custom background audio for each scene
★ Pages pan & zoom to accentuate the beautiful, original art of Mercer Mayer

Special note: This is not the Broderbund / Living Books adaptation of "Just Grandma and Me" from the early 1990s. This is a new version developed using the original artwork from the book, with custom VO, music and sound effects. This version does not contain animations on every page in an effort to keep the app reasonably priced.

    My kids love it

    It is a cute story, and they love looking for the grasshopper and spider in each picture. We read it all the time.

    Great story

    The story is well written for young children. My son frequently requests this one. The narration and music are very good and the children enjoy getting to look for the insects in each scene. At the end of the story it shows how many they have found. Very cute!

    Great interactive nook book!

    My granddaughter sat with me and listened to the "read me" feature of this book over and over. She was better at lightly swiping to turn the pages than I am and she was just 3 years old! After just a couple of times she was reading the words ahead of the e-reader lady. My son has been reading picture books to her since she was old enough to sit up in his lap.. about 6 months old or so. I know when I go to see them for Christmas she is going to want to do some more reading! I wish Nook would come out with a child's version of the nook. I know V-Tech has one but I am such a Nook fan I would love it to be a Nook for Kids. I sure don't want to just hand her my Nook Color. I need to look for a couple more books along the line of this one for when I go see her for Christmas. I cherish the time we spend sitting and "reading" together so much.

    Absolutely wonderful

    Little Critter books are the best! Not only do they have a fun story that most children can relate to, the cilors are bright, and each page has a special critter or two to find, look for the spider and grasshopper in this book. Fantastic fun!

    Not for iPad

    Very disappointed. Apparently the app books don't work with an iPad but do work with nook color and nook tablet.

    Lots of lag

    My little one loves this...until it freezes up and then locks up my entire device. I think this app could use an update.
