“We’re delighted to tip our hats to Dr. Seuss and say ‘Happy Birthday’ with a huge app sale. Dr. Seuss fans look forward to this time of year as a great opportunity to expand their Dr. Seuss digital library. Plus, now all iOS versions of our Dr. Seuss book apps include a fantastic record and share feature that lets you be the narrator of your favorite Dr. Seuss story and then share your reading with friends and loved ones.”
The Dr. Seuss digital book apps feature three reading options and simple navigation tools allowing even the youngest of readers to enjoy the story all at their fingertips. Words and illustrations are enhanced with professional narration, custom sound effects, synchronized word highlighting and picture/word association. In addition, iOS versions include a record and share feature, a page selector, the ability to turn individual learning features on or off, and a link to the Dr. Seuss Bookshelf app on the main menu.
