iPad Review - Dr. Seuss Short Story Collection

~ Posted on Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at 7:21 AM ~

We have a couple of Dr. Seuss apps on my iPad and the latest one that we reviewed is the "Hunches in Bunches" app. So when I received an email pitch on this app and upon seeing it is a compilation of Dr. Seuss's short story collection, I immediately requested to review it. Without further ado, here goes my feedback...

Description from the product page:

"Dr. Seuss Short Story Collection contains eight classic titles all in one omBook! Each story entertains in classic Seuss style and provides timeless moral lessons for readers young and old. Included in this fun interactive omBook are:

(From Yertle the Turtle)
- The Big Brag - A rabbit and a bear both boast that they are the "best of the beasts" only to be humbled by a mere worm who sees "the two biggest fools that have ever been seen!"
- Gertrude McFuzz - A young bird named Gertrude obsessed to be prettier learns a valuable lesson about accepting and believing in oneself.

(From I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today! and Other Stories)
- I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today! - A boastful young cat learns the perils of bragging when he overconfidently declares he can lick 30 tigers.
- King Looie Katz - King Looie of Katzen-stein insists that his tail be carried around which leads to his kingdom revolting with "demo-catic" results.
- The Glunk that got Thunk - A small cat tells the story of his imaginative sister who "thunked a Glunk" and how he must team up with her to get rid of the disruptive creature.

(From The Sneetches)
- Too Many Daves - Mrs. McCave names all of hers sons "Dave" which causes problems in her family and leads to an amusing list of names she wishes she had named them instead.
- The Zax - A north-going zax and a south-going zax stubbornly refuse to move out of each other ways and get literally get stuck in their tracks.
- What Was I Scared Of? - A timeless message about fear and tolerance as the story’s narrator repeatedly meets up with an empty pair of pale-green pants, both who are equally afraid of each other."

* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and the words pop out to tell you what it is!

* My 4 years old boy's favorite in this story collection has got to be "What Was I Scared Of?", he could recite almost 100% from the storyline back to me hahaha...

* This is a wonderful compilation of short story and a must if you are a fan of Dr. Seuss!

Finally!  Something completely appropriate & well-priced for the kids (OK, and for the adults, too).  I'll never get the grandson away from the "tool" now!

Dr. Seuss is a classic that the kids have loved for years and so will the future generations. I love that the collection can be purchased at once for the iPad.
