Oceanhouse Media continues to bring the wacky and unmistakable classic fictional tales of Dr. Seuss to a lively digital format. "Oh, the Places You'll Go" is not something we always know, but at least you can share this great story in a new light to a new generation through the wonders of your iDevice. The journey of life has its ups and downs, and sometimes even takes place with no one else around. Dark or light, there's no need to fright. I could go on and on, but then you may not pay attention for long. Instead, it's probably best to share these and other facts of life, along with some nice advice, to your children through the creative mind of Dr. Seuss and his timeless classic, "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" This is Oceanhouse Media's 22nd Dr. Seuss classic to make its way into a revived and innovated digital format. Both sides seem to be enjoying the collaboration, and Oceanhouse plans to bring all 44 of the hit titles of literature to our iDevices eventually.
“Our partnership with Oceanhouse Media brings even more of Dr. Seuss’ beloved stories to children around the world,” said Susan Brandt, President of Dr. Seuss Enterprises.The app has three ways to experience the story: "Read it Myself" allows reading and viewing the material in the same manner that traditional books would offer, "Read to Me" highlights each word as it is professional narrated, and "Auto Play" adds narration but also automatically turns the page when it is completed. This is a nice feature for very young children, or to just make the experience a little more like a movie. Pages come alive with animations and sounds. For more fun and chances to learn, readers can tap on objects to identify what they are, including highlighting words, and tap on a paragraph to narrate it once more. All of which are wonderful complements to the comical artwork of Theodor Seuss Geisel. Theodor Seuss Geisel, or otherwise known as Dr. Seuss, has certainly made history when it comes to children's stories. He has written over 60 different books oriented to telling crazy tales about whacky characters. His books comprise cartoon drawings with short rhymes to bring about a unique experience that certainly draws attention and is most definitely memorable. Oh, the Places You'll Go! is a universal app compatible with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch running iOS 3.0 or later, and available in the App Store at a cost of $4.99. You can find all of Oceanhouse Media's Dr. Seuss offerings via their web site.
