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!

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.

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.

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 bought this after buying 2 other apps like this for my son. I love the fact it had three ways to read with it.

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.

I would recommend this to anyone who has children and love to read Dr. Seuss books. It has 3 different options where you can have it auto-play the book, or read to you and has interaction on the pages, or read it yourself. I really enjoy the interaction parts where you can use it. It makes reading fun for kids.
