‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go‘ is the latest Dr. Seuss title to be brought to the iPad (and iPhone) by Oceanhouse Media. Here’s part of the synopsis of this tale from its App Store page:
Full of good wishes and sage advice, this tale chronicles a cheerful little guy in a yellow jumpsuit as he makes his way in the world. He travels through a wide variety of colorful Seussian landscapes, cities, and sticky situations – some exhilarating, some depressing, some a little frightening.
And here are some of the app’s key features:
Three ways to read this e-book:
★ "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!
★ Picture / Word association — words zoom up and are spoken when pictures are touched
★ Professional audio narration
★ Custom background audio for each scene
★ Pages pan & zoom to accentuate the beautiful, original art of Dr. Seuss
★ This ‘Universal App’ is optimized for both iPhone and iPad
I haven’t had a chance to grab up this new title yet, but I’m sure I will very soon. My daughter and I have enjoyed all the previous Oceanhouse Media Dr. Seuss titles on both the iPhone and the iPad. It’s hard to beat Dr. Seuss, lovingly rendered with original artwork and an enormous degree of respect for the original books, as they are always delivered by this publisher.
You can find Oh, the Places You’ll Go in the App Store now – and it is priced at $2.99 for a universal version that will run on iPhone, iPod Touch, and the iPad.
