Seuss books

Price: $1.99 - $4.99
Grade Recommendation: K - 5th
Subject: Reading
Specific Skill: n/a
Levels: n/a
Players: n/a
For iPad, iPod, or Both: Both

I've found that the books released as an actual app are more enjoyable than ones available through an e-bookstore like Apple, Barnes and Noble, or Amazon. All app-based books come with three options: Read to Me, Read It Myself, or Auto Play. The pictures are interactive and quite detail-oriented.

The many Dr. Seuss apps-as-books are no exception!

So far I have purchased...
- Gertrude McFuzz
- How The Grinch Stole Christmas
- Oh, the Places You'll Go
- The Cat in the Hat
- The Cat in the Hat Comes Back
- The Lorax
- Hop on Pop
- One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish
- Green Eggs and Ham
- The Sneetches
- What was I Scared Of?
- I Can Read With My Eyes Shut
- Horton Hears a Who
- The Foot Book
- The Big Brag
- Happy Birthday to You

The collection is quite pricey to acquire, but the apps are worth every penny. Your students will enjoy the story while also exploring what lurks behind 'hidden' areas of the pictures.
