Product Description
Green Eggs and Ham
Individual Words Are Highlighted As the Story Is Read

Now you can read it on a plane

or in a train.

You can read it in a box

or with a fox. Green Eggs and Ham,

you cannot avoid.

Because now you can read it on your Android!

Green Eggs and Ham
Digital Pages Turn with a Swipe and Sound Like a Real Book
Dr. Seuss Books Make Great Teachers, Especially with All These Additional Features

This time-honored classic of wacky rhymes and whimsical illustrations has been delighting children since 1960. 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 the simple charm of Sam-I-Am 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 Colorful Illustration

The professional narration enlivens the story with dynamic voices for both Sam-I-Am and Sam's friend. Sweet Sam's voice so tirelessly tries to convince his gruff and grouchy friend to eat Green Eggs and Ham. The silly voices are perfectly paired with digital artwork for each page. A background audio adds music and sound effects to complement the events of the story. This animated narration for both characters, original illustration from Dr. Seuss, and sound effects are sure to make your little one giggle.

Green Eggs and Ham
Touch any Image on the Screen and the Word Will Pop Up
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.

Honorable Mention and Positive Attention

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic made Interactive June 26, 2011
By Sam
Verified Purchase
This is by far my favorite Dr. Seuss book, and my 18-month son loves to "read" it with me every day right after dinner!

He is a very hands-on child, and I love the fact that it reacts to his screen taps to show him the word as well as "speak" the word related to what he touched - "Tree", "Car", "Train", "Sam", "Sam's Friend", "Fox", "Box", etc. He is just starting to add to his vocabulary and has already picked up on "Tree" and "Sam". He also recognizes many of the things in the book after only a few times through it. When we're not reading on the Android, he can find "Green Eggs and Ham" on the bookshelf, and can pick out by sight dozens of the things he sees in the interactive version.

The narrator has a very peppy and a soothing voice. The response of the screen is fast, and if my son wants to keep touching things on the screen to find the tree or car again and again, the page won't turn and continue the book until he's ready. The pace of the book is right on the money if you just let it play, or flipping pages at a leisurely pace.

While this interactive book may not teach him to read, I feel it will keep him interested in the stories and make him more apt to read a bit earlier than other children which has the potential to make him a better student when he starts in school!

If you have a child of any age (or just a child at heart yourself), pick-up at least one of these interactive Dr. Seuss books for your Android device. You'll love it as much as we do, and will probably purchase more soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than a picture e-book on my kindle fire January 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
I have bought 6 of these stories from OceanHouse Media and my kids like them all. You can read the story yourself; have it read to you, but you still turn the pages; or you can put it on auto-play and it will turn the pages while it reads the story all on its own.

I like the fact that unlike e-books, which only take up a fraction of the screen on my kindle, these take up the entire screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great on the Kindle Fire. My daughter's favorite book. December 1, 2011
Verified Purchase
I wish I had known about this sooner because it doesn't show up when searching for Children's books--you need to be looking in the app store. This is much better than a plain book and has really kept my 6-year old daughter's interest in learning to read. She used the "Read to Me" option first and now likes to read it herself with help from time to time on certain words. It is so handy that she can just touch the word in order to hear it spoken. I plan on getting all of these Dr. Seuss apps for her to read. Well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than an ebook and cheaper (kindle fire) November 20, 2011
Verified Purchase
Art is as good as the paperback. If voice is on, has different voices for the characters, which is great. The extra ability to touch objects in the book and have the word appear and be read is also a fun learning tool. Great on kindle fire, and I will be purchasing more from oceanhouse!

I have no complaints about the actual book or narration. However, I set up a profile for my son on my Nexus 7 which gives him access to select apps, one of which is Green Eggs and Ham. He does not have the ability to access either the Google Play Store nor the Amazon App store in his profile. However, Oceanhouse Media with their perpetual license validation, and perhaps Amazon, will not allow the app to play in my son's profile because the Amazon App Store is required - presumably to check the license via the Amazon App Store. So the app I purchased for my son can not be played within his profile. The Oceanhouse apps I purchased from the Google Play Store continue to work fine even though the Google Play Store is also unavailable in my son's profile.

Great book. The only problem I had was that I don't have the choice to use it as a regular reading book.
