Classic Seuss Stories Are Fun, Fun, Fun!

Dr. Seuss wrote, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.” Oceanhouse Media, Inc. has brought a classic to life with their Dr. Seuss Short Stories app.

Why is this a great storybook app? It’s colorful, the graphics are lovely, and kids will love reading with it … just like the quote says! With 8 Dr. Seuss stories to choose from, animated graphics, and the coolness of Dr. Seuss, kids will love learning to read!



Which Dr. Seuss Short Stories are Included?


  • From Yertle the Turtle – The Big Brag, Gertrude McFuzz
  • From I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today! and Other Stores – I can Lick 30 Tigers Today!, King Looie Katz, and The Glunk that got Thunk
  • From The Sneetches – Too Many Daves, The Zax, and What Was I Scared Of?


Picture / Word Association

Autistic learners love visuals and this app is perfect for them. Your child can have each story read to them while they follow along.

When they are ready, they can choose the “Read To Me” option from the Home Page.

Picture / word association throughout each story also helps kids identify pictures and build their vocabulary.

When kids tap a picture of a “bear,” the word “bear” displays. Same for mountain, rabbit, or cough. And the audio is very real and engaging. Children will love how each story comes alive and how they can interact with the story.



When kids tap each word it highlights in red to stand out.



Record Your Own Voice

Parents and kids can also record their own voices and have the story read to them with their voice. Kids love hearing their own voice and will love this feature.

How do you record?  Tap the blue arrow at the bottom left to display options for voice recording. You can add a new name for the voice and record all pages or individual pages.




When you’re ready to record, tap the microphone icon at the bottom, then stop when you are done. You can replay it and re-record, if needed. When you’re done, just save it.




The app also includes a link to other Dr. Seuss apps, if you are interested in purchasing them.




Dr. Seuss stories are classic and kids will love reading with this engaging and fun app!

So, remember,”You’re off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So… get on your way!”  -Dr. Seuss, Oh the Places You’ll Go!

Who’s Behind Autism Plugged In?

My name is Jack Kieffer and I'm a blogger sharing my love of technology at blogs like Cool Gizmo Toys, Greenamajigger, and here at Autism Plugged In where I'm trying to make a difference in the lives of children with autism.

Several years ago, I began volunteering with special needs kids, who gave me much joy and an appreciation for life. This blog is my way of giving back. Any proceeds from this effort are used to support my friends with autism. Read more about Jack or connect with him on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
