More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

The Dr. Seuss classic short-story "What Was I Scared Of?" is now available as an interactive omBook for your Android device.

"And there I was! Caught in the Snide!
And in that dreadful place,
Those spooky, empty pants and I
Were standing face to face!"

Perfect for Halloween or any time of year, this story delivers a timeless message about fear and tolerance. The tale begins with a character who repeatedly meets up with an empty pair of pale-green pants. The character is initially afraid of the pants, which are able to stand on their own despite the lack of a wearer. However when he screams for help and the pants also start to cry, he realizes that "They were just as scared as I!" Putting fear in the proper perspective, the empty pants become good friends with the character.

New features only available in this interactive omBook for your Android device include professional narration, background audio and enlarged 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.

    Great find!

    Bought this book on a whim and so glad I did! Not only is the story well written, the extra features (highlighted text, tap text, read to me, & auto play) make this book an incredible value. I definitely recommend this book!

    Great lesson for kids

    I want my kids to grow up being able to recognize and face their fears and to become empathetic and caring adults. I'm glad they released this book. I hadn't seen it before. My oldest always gets angry when faced with the unknown and this book gave us a tool to have some really constructive conversations around what's really going on.
