More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

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

"I'm ruler," said Yertle, "of all that I see.
but I don't see
enough.
That's the trouble with me.
If I could sit high, how much greater I'd be!
What a king! I'd be ruler of all I could see!"

Yertle the Turtle, the king of the pond, is unsatisfied with the small stone that serves as his throne. He commands the other turtles to stack themselves beneath him so that he can see further and expand his kingdom. As the stack of turtles get's higher and higher, poor Mack, the turtle at the very bottom of the pile, is in great pain. Mack asks Yertle for a brief rest, but Yertle just tells him to be quiet. Finally fed up with Yertle's abuse, the plain little turtle named Mack does something to upset the balance of power and free all the turtles.

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

    Great interactive experience

    Being able to touch the pictures around the pages and have the words displayed and spoken is great for new readers. As is the follow along highlighting of the story as it is read.

    All of the OHM products are wonderful

    I have purchased several of Oceanhouse Media's app based on Dr. Seuss books. They are fantastic. My children ages 5-7 love them and the different levels of interaction they afford. My older children like the ability to read at their own pace and my youngest like having them read to her. A must have. They are excellent and much cheaper than the "book" versions.
