[prMac.com] San Francisco, California - Wanderful Interactive Storybooks, a leader in the development of interactive storybook apps designed for today's digital kids, has introduced the children's classic "The Berenstain Bears Get In A Fight" for the holiday season. Originally published as Living Books, "Get In A Fight" has been updated with new features and is the fifth storybook app in the new Wanderful series.
Telling the story of a small argument that escalates to the point where neither Brother Bear nor Sister Bear can remember what they were fighting about, "The Berenstain Bears Get In A Fight" comes to life on every page as it allows readers to fully interact with all of the characters and words for hours of interactive fun. This imaginative reading experience is full surprises on every page inviting kids to read and play along with Brother Bear and Sister Bear as Mama Bear helps them settle their differences.
The storybook comes with both English and Spanish for one price; users can toggle between languages dynamically from any page, a powerful feature unlike anything found in other interactive storybooks. The App offers an easy upgrade to unlock the story in Brazilian Portuguese as well. As with all Wanderful interactive storybooks, "The Berenstain Bears Get In A Fight" includes the READ TO ME mode, allowing children to enjoy the story experience by itself.
"We are really proud of how well this great story experience translates to the iOS" said Wanderful Founder and CEO Mickey W. Mantle. "Each page is loaded with interactive elements that reinforce the story, plus some of the most extensive animated scenes of any Wanderful title yet. It's full of surprises, humor and an invitation to discover because everything inside the storybook is alive."
A short but delightful video about the authors is also included, which gives insight into how the Berenstains wrote their books.
Wanderful apps are highly intuitive and encourage children to explore each storybook page deeply for all its hidden content. With extended animation and hundreds of interactive antics, the apps provide a richer interactive experience on one page than many other story apps offer in a whole book.

Originally introduced in 1992 by Broderbund Software, Living Books were the industry's first highly interactive storybooks and embraced by educators, praised by parents and cherished by children. Twenty years later Mickey W. Mantle, the former Broderbund CTO who oversaw the technology development for the original interactive storybooks founded Wanderful and assembled key members of the original team, including Living Books creator Mark Schlichting, to re-invent the wildly popular interactive storybooks. The team has built an entirely new multi-platform engine to drive the story experience on the latest tablets, phones and computers, resulting in interactive storybook apps designed for today's generation of digital kids.
