Dr. Seuss Books Make Great Teachers, Especially with All These Additional Features

Through his rhymes and riddles, Seuss's intention has always been clear: teach children to read in a way that is both entertaining and educational. Now you can enjoy Dr. Seuss's esteemed techniques in collaboration with the intelligence and enhancements of Android.

Read to Me or Read Alone, Lots of Reading Options for Your Phone

The available reading options are sure to enhance your child's learning experience and overall enjoyment. Choose from one of the three ways to read this omBook: Read to Me, Read it Myself, or Auto Play. The Read to Me option allows your child to listen to the narrated story, highlighting the words as they are read. The Read it Myself option allows your child to read each page in the traditional form and turn the pages with a swipe. Auto Play will play the story like a movie, automatically reading and turning the pages; the best option for very young children.

Professional Narration and Original Dr. Seuss Illustration

The professional narration enlivens each story and is perfectly paired with original Dr. Seuss artwork for each page. Background audio adds music and sound effects to complement the events of the story. As it is read, watch as a zoom enhances characters and things to properly direct your child's attention. Dr. Seuss's delightful rhymes and engaging scenarios, combined with the features and enhancements of Android are sure to make your little one giggle.

Touch and Learn with Every Page Turn

To enhance learning by picture and word association, your child can touch any image on the screen and the word will pop up, identifying the object in bright, bold letters. Individual words are highlighted as the story is read making it simple for children to follow along and recognize words. Touch the words or long press the paragraph to have them repeated.

The Seven Lost Stories of Dr. Seuss Include:

• The Bippolo Seed: A mischievous, greedy cat leads an innocent duck astray.

• The Bear, the Rabbit, and the Zinniga-Zanniga: A single eyelash saves a rabbit from an insecure bear.

Both, my son and nephew love this story, as well as other Dr. Seuss' stories. I am very pleased with this app, since it offfers three choices (*read it myself, *Read to me, and *Auto Play). Also: This story came as part of a package (included you will find "The Strange Shirt Spot" - "Steak for Supper" - "Tadd and Todd" - "The Rabbit, the Bear, and the Zinniga-Zanniga" - "Gustav the Goldfish" - "The Great Henry McBride"). Thank you for such a deal!

We love OM books! They are all great. This collection is fantastic! The stories aren't as long as some of the other Dr. Suess book and they are super cute stories. I am so glad we got them : )
