Product Description

Dr. Seuss Short Story Collection contains eight classic titles all in one omBook! Each story entertains in classic Seuss style and provides timeless moral lessons for readers young and old.

Included in this fun interactive omBook are:

From Yertle the Turtle...
- The Big Brag - A rabbit and a bear both boast that they are the "best of the beasts" only to be humbled by a mere worm who sees "the two biggest fools that have ever been seen!"
- Gertrude McFuzz - A young bird named Gertrude obsessed to be prettier learns a valuable lesson about accepting and believing in oneself.

From I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today! and Other Stories...
- I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today! - A boastful young cat learns the perils of bragging when he overconfidently declares he can lick 30 tigers.
- King Looie Katz - King Looie of Katzen-stein insists that his tail be carried around which leads to his kingdom revolting with "demo-catic" results.
- The Glunk that got Thunk - A small cat tells the story of his imaginative sister who "thunked a Glunk" and how he must team up with her to get rid of the disruptive creature.

From The Sneetches...
- Too Many Daves - Mrs. McCave names all of hers sons "Dave" which causes problems in her family and leads to an amusing list of names she wishes she had named them instead.
- The Zax - A north-going zak and a south-going zak stubbornly refuse to move out of each other ways and get literally get stuck in their tracks.
- What Was I Scared Of? - A timeless message about fear and tolerance as the story’s narrator repeatedly meets up with an empty pair of pale-green pants, both who are equally afraid of each other.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice addition to Seuss collection April 12, 2013
By Linda
Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of other Oceanhouse Media apps, typically with clear graphics and overall good quality. While the Dr. Seuss short story collection is a nice addition, I am surprised with some quality issues. For example, in the story "Too Many Daves" the last few words of the story are clipped off in the audio. Annoying to have the end of the story missing! (Hopefully will be corrected in an update?) Images are also a bit blurry compared to other Seuss apps (Green Eggs and Ham, Cat in the Hat, Horton Hears a Who, etc.) and it's obvious not as much effort went into the audio (limited sound effects that are obviously recycled clips from other apps from Oceanhouse).

Despite not being of the same calibre of some other apps, I am sure these issues will be irrelevant to my one and three year old grandchildren. I think they will enjoy these short stories immensely--and that is what really matters.

4.0 out of 5 stars finally an interactive book for android that works April 14, 2013
Verified Purchase
I was hesitant to order yet another children's book for my tablet, only to find that it wasn't formatted correctly. This book is worth it. The pictures are all click able, sending an animation of the word to pop up. The voice reads the stories nicely. And of course, Dr Seuss is wonderful.

Money well spent! I am extremely frugal but to see that my child is finally ok with giving new words a try and NOT becoming frustrated, works for me! Wether the words are real or not, irrelevant. Gaining confidence to tackle pronouncing them, priceless!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for entertainment and teaching reading May 25, 2014
Verified Purchase
I bought this for my six year old niece and she loves it and uses it a lot. In a few months she has really improved a lot with her reading after using because she can highlight any word she doesn't know it it will say it. She is now reading regular children's books quite well. I was amazed.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE! March 14, 2014
Verified Purchase
Oceanhouse Media, Inc never fails to amaze me! This collection of books has kept both of my daughters (2 & 6) entertained for hours. It has three ways to read the book, Read it By Myself, Read it to Me and Autoplay. Each page is clickable anywhere on the page and has some way to interact. It has been helping my 6yr old learn words because you can click on individual words and it reads the word. It helps her frustration when she cant sound them out. Awesome collection, I recommend them for everyone with children!
