Explaining how There’s No Place Like Space and why Ice Is Nice, the Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library has gone far and wide, but now it’s time for something much closer to home. Oceanhouse Media introduces the fifth Learning Library to go omBook, Oh, The Pets You Can Get!

Of all the pets you can get, which is the right fit? A dog, a cat, or maybe a cute rabbit. Before you pick out your furry friend, discover what’s what and who’s who of the domesticated animals that may suit you. A dog can do tricks, but they can get really big. A canary is small, and they do like to sing. Although, what about the cat that sits in lap? So cuddly and soft, and tidy above all else. No matter which one you pick, just know what to do, so your pet stays happy as well as you.

The app has two ways to experience the story: “Read it Myself” allows reading and viewing the material in the same manner that traditional books would offer and “Read to Me” highlights each word as it is professionally narrated.

Pages come alive with animations and sounds, plus it’s even possible to drag objects around. For more fun and opportunities to learn, readers can tap on objects to identify what they are, including highlighting words if the item was referenced in the narration. Words in bold type contain even more information. Tap on them to initiate a pop-up of the full glossary entry.

Oh, the Pets You Can Get!: All About Our Animal Friends is a universal app compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch running iOS 5.0 or later, and available in the App Store at the introductory price of $3.99. You can find all of Oceanhouse Media’s Cat in the Hat Learning Library offerings via their website.
