The Lorax – Dr. Seuss by Oceanhouse Media

The Lorax - Dr. Seuss Screenshots


#1 Overall Paid iPad App - March 2012
4 stars out of 4 - USA Today

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not, proclaims The Lorax in this cautionary tale of greed and environmental destruction. The story recounts how the Lorax tries to save the Truffula Forest and its inhabitants from disaster at the hands of an insatiable factory owner. The Loraxs pleas are ignored and tragedy follows. A Dr. Seuss classic, it also serves as an ecological warning that still rings true today.

New features only available in this omBook include professional narration, background audio and enlarged artwork for each scene. To promote reading in young children, individual words are highlighted as the story is read and words zoom up when pictures are touched. By combining the original text and artwork of Dr. Seuss with features that entertain and promote reading, this omBook appeals to readers of all ages.

Recommended Ages: 3 - 6

Three ways to read this omBook (Oceanhouse Media digital book):

Still one star until portrait option allowing for full page viewing pleasure.

Lora's app (5 stars)
This is a great app! I turn on the sound and the children I work with can hear it while they are reading it. It helps them to learn the words and how to pronounce them. I also enjoy reading it myself. It is a good story about saving the trees.

Beautiful Story, Wonderful App! (5 stars)
My grandies love this story and the app allows them to have it read to them or read it themselves! It all depends on their age and ability. I love it, too
