More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

The Dr. Seuss classic "Horton Hears a Who!" is now available as an omBook for your Android device.

"I'll just have to save him.
Because, after all,
A person's a person
No matter how small."

Horton the Elephant hears a small speck of dust talking to him. It turns out the speck of dust is actually a tiny planet, home to a city called Who-ville, inhabited by tiny inhabitants known as Whos. Their Mayor asks Horton to protect them from harm, which Horton happily agrees to do, proclaiming throughout the book that "even though you can’t see or hear them at all, a person’s a person, no matter how small." In doing so he is ridiculed and forced into a cage by the other animals in the jungle for believing in something that they are unable to see or hear. How will Horton and the Whos escape this predicament?

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.Â 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.

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

Additional Features:
Picture / Word association - words zoom up and are spoken when pictures are touched
Professional audio narration
Custom background audio for each scene
Features the beautiful, original art of Dr. Seuss

    Disappointed..

    I purchased this for my 5 yr old granddaughter, and was disappointed. First of all, the 'read to me' voice wasn't the original from the sixties that I was expecting (Boris Karloff). Then all the features designed to make it educational for kids was very distracting (i.e. when you swipe to turn the page, whatever you touched would display the written word of what the object was. I tried reading it to her but just got frustrated and gave up. She just plays around with it now, but I don't believe she's ever actually read the story in its entirety. I guess I'm going to have to buy the hardback book for her, if she's to enjoy the story as much as she enjoys reading Green Eggs and Ham in hardback.
