Dr. Seuss Reading Apps Review

Do your kids LOVE Dr. Seuss? I’m sure they love apps! Now, imagine combining the two – in an easy learn to read format. That’s exactly what Oceanhouse Media did! Our family was lucky enough to work on a Dr. Seuss Reading Apps review and we were so excited.

My kids LOVED these apps! I asked my kids what they liked about the apps and their answers were similar and simple – “They’re FUN!”

Dr. Seuss Reading Apps Review – Since I’d like to give you a little more detail than their two word response, I’ll tell you why as a parent, I like these apps:

  • My children now want to read books on my phone – rather than play games on my phone!  That right there, is almost all you need to know!  (But I’ll include more bullet points)
  • The apps are digital and interactive versions of the Dr. Seuss books that you and your family already adore.
  • These are learn-to-read apps – they encourage literacy skills.
  • The apps were developed in collaboration with early literacy experts (I like this), and they’re designed specifically for beginning readers.
  • On the apps, kids can practice spelling, phonics, and rhyming, and they can improve their reading comprehension (while having FUN!).
  • The apps are ENTERTAINING – your kids will want to be on the apps – learning all the while.
  • The apps are visually appealing with colorful/vibrant graphics. I’m a sucker for colorful – so are my kids.
  • They’re EASY to navigate. Kids can enjoy the app without any grown-up assistance (that’s nice!).
  • Parents can adjust settings to customize the reading experience, with the options being 1. Read along with highlighting narration, 2. read it yourself, or 3. auto play.  This means the app grows with your child – which I appreciate.
  • STARS! Kids can tap, drag, and tilt to reveal hidden stars on each page. Stars trigger other learning activities, such as drag-and-drop exercises to match words to pictures and quick reading-comprehension checks.  Once kids reach the end of the story, they can see how many of the learning activities they found, and re-play them on the main menu.
  • Good stats – parents can track a child’s progress through the Reading Stats section, which tracks minutes, pages read, and more.
  • You’ll see from the graphics below, that all the apps have a similar format/structure, with similar features and activities. Little ones like structure – they like to know what’s coming next.

Are there any negatives?  Just one:

  • There isn’t an option that I could find that would allow us to have multiple user accounts for multiple kids.

50 Best Kids Books

Wowza – over 50 Dr. Seuss classic books in one app! And they’ve all been adapted into (wonderfully) interactive experiences!

So, I bet you’re wondering about the 50+ titles – I know I was. They include:  And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street; Bartholomew and the Oobleck; Daisy-Head Mayzie; Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?; Dr. Seuss’s ABC; Dr. Seuss’s Sleep Book; Fox In Socks; Gertrude McFuzz; Green Eggs and Ham; Gustav, the Goldfish; Happy Birthday to You!; Hop on Pop; Horton Hatches the Egg; Horton Hears a Who!; How The Grinch Stole Christmas!; Hunches in Bunches; I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today!; I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!; I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew; If I Ran the Circus; If I Ran the Zoo; King Looie Katz; Marvin K. Mooney Will You Please Go Now!; McElligot’s Pool; Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?; Oh Say Can You Say?; Oh, the Places You’ll Go!; Oh, the Thinks You Can Think!; On Beyond Zebra!; One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish; Scrambled Eggs Super!; Steak for Supper; Tadd and Todd; The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins; The Big Brag; The Bippolo Seed; The Butter Battle Book; The Cat In The Hat; The Cat In The Hat Comes Back; The FOOT Book; The Glunk That Got Thunk; The Great Henry McBride; The King’s Stilts; The Lorax; The Rabbit; The Bear and the Zinniga-Zanniga; The Shape of Me and Other Stuff; The Sneetches; The Strange Shirt Spot; The Zax; There’s a Wocket in My Pocket!; Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose; Too Many Daves; What was I Scared of?; Yertle the Turtle; and You’re Only Old Once.  Like I said – WOWZA! More titles than you have in your home – more titles than you were even aware of!

And I’m SO happy The Sneeches book is included!  It’s as pertinent today as it was when it was written, in 1961.

When the Star-Belly children went out to play ball,
Could a Plain Belly get in the game? Not at all.
You only could play if your bellies had stars
And the Plain-Belly children had none upon thars.

BTW- there’s a Dr. Seuss Treasury School Edition too – which is great for homeschool co-ops.

Both Versions are Available at the App Store – Home Version and

School/Co-op Edition.
