The very first Elmer the Patchwork Elephant app is now available in the app store and the Android Market! The Elmer's Special Day app is the first picture book to be launched in a new series of interactive apps for young children, developed by Oceanhouse Media.

Elmer’s Special Day

Apple iOS / Android

Follow Elmer and his friends through this interactive app as they get ready for Elmer’s Special Day! In all their excitement the noisy elephants come to life in the very first Elmer app for your iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch or Android device.

By combining the original text and artwork with features that entertain and promote reading, this app appeals to readers of all ages.

Three ways to read the Elmer app:

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


  • Picture / Word association – words zoom up and are spoken aloud when pictures are touched
  • Individual words highlight and are read aloud when tapped
  • Professional audio narration, sound effects and exciting music
  • Custom background audio for each scene
  • Pages pan & zoom to accentuate the colourful, original artwork
