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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great story with a moral May 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
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 : )

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Collection March 13, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful collection of Dr. Seuss that may not immediately come to mind. My daughter loved The Bippolo Seed so much that she did her first book report on it (she's in 1st grade); and, I went and bought the hard-cover. All of these though are the books she continually goes back to on the Kindle.

This does have the read-to-me option, which we don't use (although I did once go through each story with this option and the narration, music and sound effects are wonderful). I do like that if she stumbles on a word, she can press that word and it will tell it to her. Or, you can click on the pictures to see the related words and pan-in for a closer look.

You get seven titles with this and it is very much worth the cost (you can pay that much for one of these titles at the book store). A great investment.
