Green Eggs and Ham for iPad

Green Eggs and Ham – one of the most popular children’s books of all time – is now available as an eBook for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

Like many of Dr. Seuss’ works, this is a timeless classic that I remember my brother and I loving when we were kids, and one that is now a favorite of my daughter.

Green Eggs and Ham eBook for iPad

Here’s more detail on this latest Dr. Seuss eBook for the iPad and iPhone:

"Would you eat them in a box? Would you eat them with a fox?"

This timeless Dr. Seuss classic has been delighting readers since 1960. Sam-I-am never gives up trying to convince his friend that green eggs and ham are a tasty treat. He tries everything – in a house, with a mouse, in a box, with a fox, with a goat, on a boat – to no avail. Then finally, finally his friend caves in… and tries them. And guess what? "I do so like Green Eggs and Ham!" Kids will love Dr. Seuss’s wacky rhymes and whimsical illustrations. And who knows, now they may even be willing to taste their broccoli.

New features only available in this eBook include professional narration, background audio and digital artwork for each scene.  To promote reading in young children, individual words are highlighted as the story is read and words zoom up when pictures are touched.  By combining the original text and artwork of Dr. Seuss with features that entertain and promote reading, this eBook appeals to readers of all ages.

Three ways to read this eBook:
★ "Read to Me" — listen to the narrated story with words highlighted as they are read
★ "Read it Myself" — read the book in its traditional form
★ "Auto Play" — plays like a movie, automatically reading and turning pages. Great for younger children!

Additional Features:
★ Picture / Word association — words zoom up and are spoken when pictures are touched
★ Individual words highlight and are read aloud when tapped
★ Professional audio narration
★ Custom background audio for each scene

This is another release from Oceanhouse Media, who use original artwork and have proven to be superb at faithfully rendering many Dr. Seuss classics on the iPad and iPhone.  Several of theirs are already big favorites in my household.

You can find this new Green Eggs and Ham eBook in the App Store now, priced at $3.99.  It is a universal app that is compatible with the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.

  1. What I don't understand is why the Curious George books haven't reached the iPad yet–they have several great ones on the iPhone and it would seem to be easy and natural to port those apps overs. Sigh. Guess I have to wait.

    1. My impression is that apps that just get quickly ported over are not usually very impressive on the iPad. The ones that are seem to have quite a bit of development time poured into them.
