Oceanhouse Media just released another Dr. Seuss book a few days ago – Horton Hatches the Egg. They are giving a promotion right now.
Kind-hearted Horton the elephant is persuaded to sit on an egg while its mother, the good-for-nothing bird lazy Maysie flutters off on a vacation. Horton is teased and taunted by his jungle friends, “How Absurd! Old Horton the Elephant thinks he’s a bird!” He’s captured by hunters, even placed in a traveling circus, but he keeps his promise and protects the egg. When runaway Maysie stumbles upon the traveling circus and demands her egg back, something incredible and unexpected occurs, teaching children that virtue earns a reward!
“I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. . . An elephant’s faithful, one hundred per cent!”
It has all the features Oceanhouse Media book apps have. This is the reason you want to have an app from a reputable developer – you know the quality you can expect.
Each single word is highlighted as the narrator reads the story, helping children connect the written with the spoken word. If you tap a word, that word will be read again. If you tap any place in the text and hold for a while, the whole page will be repeated.
Three ways to use the app:
- ”Read to Me” – listen to the narrated story with words highlighted as they are read
- ”Read it Myself” – read the book in its traditional form
- ”Auto Play” – plays like a movie, automatically reading and turning pages. Great for younger children!
- Picture/Word association – words zoom up and are spoken when pictures are touched
- Individual words highlight and are read aloud when tapped
- Professional audio narration
- Custom background audio for each scene
- Pages pan & zoom to accentuate the beautiful, original art of Dr. Seuss
What the Kids Learn:
In addition to spelling and reading, they also learn from the faithful elephant to keep promise, to be responsible and trustworthy.
The paper book is at $9.00 on Amazon. Now the introduction price at App store is only $2.99. The app for Android at Amazon is $1.99. With so many nice features, it is definitely a good value.
