The animated Dr. Seuss books on iPhone by Oceanhouse Media are some of the loveliest and most thoughtful book apps I have downloaded. The company has finally brought the bestselling and beloved children’s classic “Green Eggs and Ham” to the iTunes App Store via the Green Eggs and Ham iPhone app ($3.99). What respectable adult hasn’t tried green eggs and ham in their lifetime?
As I said with The Cat in the Hat app, this is a smart app with a spirited narrator that sucks you right into the story, which you have most likely read or heard a hundred times. The Green Eggs and Ham app has all the same great features as the other Dr. Seuss iPhone apps by Oceanhouse Media, with the choice to read it yourself, have it read to you -- or you can even utilize the autoplay feature. The words light up as the narrator reads -- a great bonus for young ones just learning to read. And, you can touch a word or graphic in the story to have it read out loud.
The graphics are striking and the background music is well matched to the story, making the app version of the book an interactive Dr. Seuss experience you won’t want to miss.
