Have you met Tacky the Penguin? Tacky is a not-so-perfect penguin living in the Arctic with all of his “perfect” friends – Goodly, Lovely, Angel, Neatly, and Perfect. In this humorous tale of Camp Life and Camp Whoopihaha, Tacky and all of his friends play games, do arts and crafts, and make ‘smores, and gather around the fire for Scary Story Night. But when one of the creatures from one of the Scary Stories comes to visit the camp that evening, it is Tacky who saves the day.
Tacky the Penguin is written by Helen Lester and is one of the latest in the Tacky the Penguin series available for your Nook, Android, or Apple Device from Oceanhouse Media. “Oceanhouse Media, Inc. is a leading publisher of more than 255 apps for iOS (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), Android and NOOK Color devices.

With Oceanhouse Media, books such as Tacky Goes to Camp can be played on your device in three modes – Read to Me, Read it Myself, and Auto Play. Oceanhouse Media goes even further with the option to tap words and pictures to hear them read aloud and learn more words outside of the story.
Tacky Goes to Camp is the Toddler’s new favorite book on her iPod Touch, and I love that she will sit and play quietly in the car or on the couch while I am working or getting dinner ready. Tacky is a fun way to help her learn how to read, and teach great lessons about life.
