If your kids are big fans of Dr. Seuss (and, really, who isn’t?) then Oceanhouse Media has a big surprise for you! Just this week, they have launched a brand new collection of classic Dr.Seuss stories for the iPad. ‘Dr.Seuss Short Stories’ brings together 8 of Seuss’ most popular stories into one cohesive collection that is perfect for kids of all ages.
The ‘Dr.Seuss Short Stories’ app includes 8 popular stories such as:
- The Big Brag
- Gertrude McFuzz
- I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today!
- King Looie Katz
- The Glunk That Got Thunk
- Too Many Daves
- The Zax
- What Was I Scared Of?
Oceanhouse has extended several special features that are available only in this particular app. These special features include professional narration, background audio and enlarged original artwork for each scene. In an effort to promote literacy skills in young children, the app also includes a word-highlighting feature that lights up each individual word as the story is read. When pictures are touched that corresponds with any give word in the story, the word zooms forward and enlarges to emphasize picture-word correlation as well. Pages even pan an zoom to accentuate Dr.Seuss’ beautiful artwork.
The ‘Dr.Seuss Short Stories’ app offers three popular ways to read, including:
- Read to Me– Children can listen to the narrated story with words that highlight as they are read.
- Read it Myself- Allows children to read the books in their traditional form with no narration or sound.
- Auto-play- Stories play out like a movie for younger children who may not be able to follow along with narration.
