themes: reading, dr seuss, christmas, classic books

languages: English

What it is:an interactive adaptation of Dr Seuss's classic.

What you do with it:three ways of 'reading' this book: listen to the narrated story with the words highlighted, read as a 'traditional' book and auto play (automatic reading and turning the pages). Tap on the pictures to hear the associated words read out.

What we liked: the story, original artwork, professional audio narration, sound backgrounds, picture/word associations, good navigation and reading options (easy access to single pages, words are highlighted when read by the narrator, tap twice to repeat the paragraph etc.), the option to record and share your own narration.

What we didn't like: the ads for other apps have to be manually turned off (they are 'on' by default). No option to tap and listen to single words (available in other Oceanhouse Media releases)
