Tomorrow – March 2nd – is Dr. Seuss’s birthday. At my daughter’s school, they will be reading Dr. Seuss stories as will many schools. I’m sure Google will have a Dr. Seuss doodle. If you have a Kindle Fire, you can enjoy Dr. Seuss books in a whole new way. I got the Charlie Brown Christmas app for Kindle (it was a free app one day) and it was such a huge hit with my daughter. These book apps are pretty neat. You can either read the book or have it read to you. With Charlie Brown, there were several ways to interact with the book like shaking a tree to find a hidden ornament. I suspect the Dr. Seuss books to be equally awesome since they are from the same company – Oceanhouse Media.
We bought The Lorax since we are going to see the movie this weekend. I thought it would be fun to read the book and then see a movie – something we always try to do. But there are several Dr. Suess books that are available for the Kindle Fire as an app. Most are $1.99. The Lorax was $2.99.
