 Here are a few of the new digital download children’s books we’ve tried this month. We haven’t run into a single one that the kids didn’t enjoy. Oceanhouse Media has also introduced the first digital lift a flap books that make reading along even more fun and interactive. Combine that with the holiday theme and you’ve got a book the kids ask to read over and over again.
