'''''Living Books''''' was a series of interactive books with animation at children[[note]]basically, proto-{{KineticNovel}}s (''not'' VisualNovels, as there is no semblance of choice involved)[[/note]] produced by Creator/{{Broderbund}} and distributed on CD-ROM for UsefulNotes/MicrosoftWindows and UsefulNotes/AppleMacintosh. The series began with the release of ''[[Literature/LittleCritter Just Grandma and Me]]'' (an adaptation of the book by Mercer Mayer) in 1992. Later, in 2012, several former Living Books employees formed Wanderful Interactive Storybooks and secured the rights to Living Books assets from owning company Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and have since released many of the games for modern [[UsefulNotes/IOSGames iOS]] and [[UsefulNotes/AndroidGames Android]] mobile devices, with Windows and Mac versions still on the horizon. The newer apps add a few new features such as an in-page interface for skipping directly to other pages, as well as the ability to switch between languages on the fly.

** Also released by Davidson was the ''Puddle Books'' series from Creator/FisherPrice which consisted of six original stories which had an activity on each page you can "jump" into. Another one of the better clones due to its humor and wide variety of activities.
