If you grew up with Dr.Suess books and have had a hard time finding them in your closet of kids stuff, you may be saved by these apps by Oceanhouse Media. They have many, many books available for kids of all ages, including your favorites from Dr.Suess, such as Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, The Lorax, and the list goes on and on.

The apps typically cost $3.99, which is a lot less than buying the book to begin with. Some apps are Free as well, but you’d have to search for which ones on the Oceanhouse Media website here. The apps are not just ebooks either, they come complete with the following features;

Three ways to read this digital book:

  1. “Read to Me” — listen to the narrated story with words highlighted as they are read
  2. “Read it Myself” — read the book in its traditional form
  3. “Auto Play” — plays like a movie, automatically reading and turning pages. Great for younger children!

Additional Features:

  1. Picture / Word association — words zoom up and are spoken when pictures are touched
  2. Professional audio narration
  3. Custom background audio for each scene
  4. Pages pan & zoom to accentuate the beautiful, original art of Dr. Seuss

If you are struggling to get your kids to read, why not get these apps. It’ll encourage them to read, or at least get a book read to them, and it’ll keep them involved because they finally get to use that new iPhone you’ve never let them touch! Best of both worlds for parents and children!
