A fun way to learn shapes…New from Oceanhouse
The Shape of Me and Other Stuff by Dr. Seuss is the the latest OM book from the good folks at Oceanhouse Media. Originally published in 1973 it is aimed at the very young as a fun way to introduce shapes.
Although the drawings are all in silouette..to enhance the shapes..this book is classic Dr. Seuss with all the whimsical rhymes you expect to find. To promote reading in young children, individual words are highlighted as the story is read and words zoom up when pictures are touched. 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. I even found it fun to read…I have always enjoyed Dr. Seuss’ wacky rhymes.
There are three ways to read this omBook
★ “Read to Me” — listen to the narrated story with words highlighted as they are read as in the video excerpt
★ “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!
The Shape of Me and Other Stuff is available for iPhone and iPad at a special introductory price of $1.99 at the Apple App Store. It is optimized for Retina displays. Available for Android Smartphones and Tablets at the Google Play Store and the Barnes & Noble Nook store at the $1.99 introductory price. It is $2.99 at the Amazon App Store. Wherever you buy it I’m sure the young ones in your family will love this great book.
