Gather ornaments and decorate your own Charlie Brown Christmas tree

A Charlie Brown Christmas, the beloved Peanuts classic by Charles M. Schulz, is now available as a spectacular interactive storybook optimized for your Android device. Sit back and enjoy original dialogue, digitally remastered illustrations, animation, music, and narration by Peter Robbins, the original voice of Charlie Brown.

"Isn't there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?!"

Only Charlie Brown can turn the magic of Christmas into a problem. Even though the snowflakes are falling softly, carols are ringing sweetly, and people are gathering merrily, Charlie Brown is feeling down. He just doesn't understand Christmas. Join him, along with Snoopy and the entire Peanuts gang as they struggle to find the true meaning of Christmas. It's all accompanied by a charming soundtrack featuring music and sound effects from the original show.

Reading is Wonder-Full

This version of A Charlie Brown Christmas is bursting with fun interactivities that will delight children and adults alike. Go caroling with the Peanuts choir, finger-paint with the gang, and participate in the Spectacular Super-Colossal Neighborhood Christmas Lights and Display Contest to unlock decorations for your very own Charlie Brown Christmas Tree. You can even play Schroeder's piano (to the tune of "Linus and Lucy", of course). Note highlighting helps to introduce and improve musical skills.

Little readers will love turning pages with the swipe of a finger. They can also watch text highlighting as they listen to the story narration, hear individual words spoken with a single tap, touch and drag objects to make them spring to life or tilt to watch them slide and move, and much more. With something to discover on every page, this is one interactive Peanuts adventure you won't want to miss this holiday season!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rewards December 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
Great app, but I wanted to help people looking for all the rewards to unlock the Christmas tree decorations. Don't read below unless you are stuck and don't want to find them on your own.

***SPOILER***

Christmas tree - Finish the story
Woodstock - Spill paint on your hands, there's a bucket of paint behind the set with Charlie Brown, pull the paintbrush out to get paint on your finger
Charlie Brown - Find every Charlie Brown
Angel Sally - Sing a carol with the gang
Striped tree - Find every blue & green tree
Little tree - Find every little tree
Snoopy ornament - Make everyone skate
Football ornament - Knock Lucy on her feet by finishing the conversation at the Psychiatric Help scene
Tinsel - Help fix up Charlie Brown's tree, this one was tricky I did it about 5 times before it finally gave me the reward. Help the crew decorate the tree by clicking everything basically.
Snowflake ornament - Catch all 25 snowflakes
Star tree stand - Touch 5 stars
Woodstock ornament - Play "Linus & Lucy" on the piano
Snoopy on doghouse - Help Snoopy turn on all his lights in the scene where Charlie Brown is standing by the doghouse with the little tree.

I bought this app for my kindle fire and had no problems with it. It was very interactive, fun and I felt as if I was watching the TV show with the added bonus of being a part of it. It is highly enjoyable and recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome December 7, 2011
By diane

I liked this app from the title page - the 45rpm record plays the theme song, complete with a touch of static, just like an actual, old school record player - but, beyond that- I have this on my kindle fire - I turned pages and listened to the story with narration, I shut that off and it spoke only a single word that I selected ( to help beginning readers) all the animation worked without a glitch- including the famous toy piano. I really like this one -

5.0 out of 5 stars Read the reviews before you download... December 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
Read the reviews before downloading... it obviously does not work for the Nexus and a few other systems so why download and give it one star? There are a few bugs I encountered (Samsung Epic) but overall a brilliant and beautiful app with wonderful interactions. If I could, I would give it 10 stars to offset the illiterate scrooges.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect December 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
First off, Amazon needs to have a section where people who have trouble running the app can flag it as so, and eliminate those people from the review of the actual app when they never even got in.

This interactive story is fantastic. Not only do you get the original Charlie Brown Christmas story, there are fun things to do along the way, such as play along with Vince Guaraldi to "Linus and Lucy", and help Snoopy decorate his dog house.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really cute December 23, 2011
By student
Verified Purchase
This is a really cute abridged version of A Charlie Brown Christmas. You flip through the lines at the bottom of each scene, you can also touch the characters and have them say their lines and trigger other actions. The characters voices are the same as the original special. It also includes a brief snowball throwing game, 2 songs you can play on the piano, and the find-the-ornament activity.

It would be nice to be able to turn pages without flipping through all the lines at the bottom, but this is a small complaint for a short book.

The biggest problem is the compatability issue. On my Samsung Galaxy Indulge, it kept crashing or hanging every time I tried to open the "book" from the title screen. Rebooting the phone and clearing the RAM made it so that I could go through the book, as long as my phone did not sleep or change screens while viewing it. It seems to be a very resource hungry app, so that may be why some people with older phones are having issues. To me, it is still very much worth the headache at free, and I would consider purchasing other books by this company.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great on Galaxy S with Cyanogen mod7 December 23, 2011
Verified Purchase
Sorry for those this apparently dies not work, and for those which don't like Charlie Brown but got it and rated it poorly I can only ask why the heck did they get it? I love Charlie Brown and I loved this app. I got it for free but would have bought it earlier if I knew it existed. Thanks to loud crow! I like the little bits of intereactivity but not too much to take away from the story.

Charlie Brown Xmas app on Kindle Fire?
I'm interested in the same thing. The iPad has all these amazing interactive kids books coming out, and I'm really hoping these publishers start releasing versions for the Kindle Fire, too!
