I am excited to let readers know about the important sale that Oceanhouse Media will be having from Friday, February 28, through Thursday, March 6, discounting their entire library of Dr. Seuss apps – including both the classic Dr. Seuss titles as well as apps from The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library, all to celebrate Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2nd. Personally, I can tell readers that during the years before I had the opportunity to review applications I would take full advantage of this annual super-Seuss sale, gathering titles for my son at a wonderful discount that allowed me to try stories with I was not familiar for little financial risk and with great success, creating new family-favorite tales that I thoroughly enjoy to this day.
I greatly appreciate being able to listen to the optional professional narration included within each of these apps as I honestly find much of Dr. Seuss difficult to effectively read out loud. Subtle, pitch-perfect sound effects can be found within these adaptations of which I quite fond, adding new dimensions to these timeless titles. The original illustrations are included within and look bright and appealing against the backlit screens of the iPad or iPhone. Children will benefit from the highlighted text as well as the ability to tap a word to hear pronunciations if extra help is needed while reading as well as other features associated with these applications.
For the first time, this sale includes each of the 44 classic storybooks by Dr. Seuss and those from the related The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library; including Oceanhouse Media’s anthology applications Dr. Seuss Beginner Book Collection 1 and 2, Dr. Seuss Short Story Collection, I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today! and Other Stories – Dr. Seuss and The Bippolo Seed and Other Lost Stories – Dr. Seuss. Enjoy 80% off of five of Oceanhouse Media’s most popular Dr. Seuss apps, as well as one dollar off other titles and special pricing for the storybook collection apps. These thoughtfully narrated Dr. Seuss apps have allowed me to sit back and listen to these stories along with my child, and I can say that I enjoy these storybook apps sometimes more than even he may, making this yearly sale truly wonderful.
