Shout Out: Dr Seuss apps by Oceanhouse Media

Who doesn't love Dr Seuss!

Now Oceanhouse Media has provided readers with a new way for these timeless classics to be enjoyed.

Designed for iPhone, iPod, iPad and Android devices, each Dr Seuss story is able to be enjoyed in three ways: 'Read to Me', 'Read it Myself' and 'Auto Play'. Individual words are highlighted and read aloud when tapped, while children can also touch the pictures to see the identifying words zoom up and hear them spoken, helping to improve word recognition. And in a feature that is sure to delight the grandparents, you can also record your child's voice reading the book aloud!

Titles include favourites such as The Cat in the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham, The Lorax and Oh, the Places You'll Go! as well as less well-known titles like Hop on Pop and The Butter Battle Book.

'Lite' versions of many are available for free; full versions are from $3.90 RRP, depending on platform.
