More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

The Dr. Seuss classic "The Sneetches" is now available as an omBook for your Android device.

But, because they had stars, all the Star-Belly Sneetches
Would brag, "We're the best kind of Sneetch on the beaches."
With their snoots in the air, they would sniff and they'd snort
"We'll have nothing to do with the Plain-Belly sort!"

This timeless Dr. Seuss classic is an unforgettable tale of the unfortunate Sneetches, tricked by Sylvester McMonkey McBean ("the Fix-it-up Chappie"), who teaches them a valuable lesson: pointless prejudice can be costly.

New features only available in this omBook include professional narration, background audio and digital artwork for each scene. Â 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

    Classic story & lesson in a great new format!

    Love the story of the Sneetches and the valuable life lessons it teaches. This new format makes those lessons available to even more children (and adults).

    Wonderful!

    I loved this book as a little kid, and it was so hard to find in print. I am so glad they have this app so I can share it with my littlest siblings. The auto play feature is wonderful too, so if I am doing something else, they can still enjoy it! A recommend for all who love Dr, Suess!

    A perennial favorite.

    A great book now available on the nook.
    Good for beginning readers as the application says the name of whatever you touch in the picture and displays the name.
    Nice to be able to record a narration for my kids.

    This looks like a good adaptation, but I cannot read it on my No

    This looks like a good adaptation, but I cannot read it on my Nook app for iPhone. On the B&N app, the description read that this version would read on the Nook for iPhone app, but it doesn't display in my library. Caveat emptor!
