More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

The Dr. Seuss Classic "You're Only Old Once!" is now available as an interactive omBook for your Android device.

"You must see Dr. Pollen, our Allergy Whiz, who knows every sniffle and itch that there is. He will check your reactions to thumbtacks and glue, catcher's mitts, leaf mould, and cardigans too."

If laughter is the best medicine, then "You’re Only Old Once!" is a delightful new defense against aging. Anyone who has ever submitted to a battery of medical tests will empathize with Dr. Seuss’s Everyman as we follow him through his checkup with the experts at the Golden Years Clinic. From the initial Eyesight and Solvency Test through all the stops along Stethoscope Row to finally being “properly pilled” and “properly billed,” Dr. Seuss lightens the aches and pains of growing old with his inimitable wit and wisdom.

"You're Only Old Once!" was written shortly after Geisel had suffered through a series of illnesses, during which he spent a considerable amount of time in hospital waiting rooms. To pass the time, he began sketching images of hospital machines and scenes of medical procedures. He later began to work those ideas into a book.

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.

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

    Fantastic book

    I have not tried this app yet, but I have the book. I used to lend one of my copies to patients while I worked on the floor of the hospital. They all got a kick out of it, and how true it was, ( in the context of having so many tests). It brought them a laugh. It will to anyone who has been under a doctors care.
    Only 4 stars since I do not have this app and have no idea how well it runs.
