Do you like Green Eggs and Ham? Published originally on August 12, 1960, we now celebrate the 55th birthday of this classic Dr. Seuss book. With all the children heading back to school in the coming weeks, what better way to make learning and reading fun again with some hands on educational development with the new read & learn Green Eggs and Ham APP from Oceanhouse Media. Created for ages 3-6 and available as an iOS Exclusive (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch with at least iOS 8.
This post has been sponsored by Oceanhouse Media, but all opinions are my own. With my niece heading to Kindergarten this year and learning to read, I knew this was something we had to download on the family IPad for her. There are a lot of fun games but to bring such a classic story to life and have the ability to not only teach and excel in reading but other learning games makes the Green Eggs and Ham Read & Learn APP a must get for the kids!
Kids can use the 30+ learning activities hidden throughout the book app to practice spelling, rhyming, reading comprehension, and other key literacy skills before going back to preschool or kindergarten. This is one way my niece can read without her little brother tearing out pages of a book! The cost of this new APP is less than the cost of most books!
My niece really enjoys the pictures, spelling, and rhyming within the APP. With every page offering fun animation and easy text/swipe capabilities there is no frustrations with playing along while learning. My niece has already taken to teaching her little brother how to point to matching items and photos. Each time they play, they can have a whole new game and interaction with the book that there is no way it can become boring as something is changing each time they play.
A world of reading and education in one APP is such a value, I am hoping they release more of these wonderful Dr. Seuss books in read & play APPs before too long. My niece asked, “Are there any more books like this?” to which I answered, “Oh, there is a world of reading and fun with Dr. Seuss, you just wait!”
