In the If I Ran the Zoo by Dr. Seuss, Young Gerald is not impressed by the animals at the zoo so he conjures up plans for “New Zoo, McGrew Zoo.” Join him on an exciting globe-trotting safari in search of the world’s most unusual creatures (with equally unusual habits).
And to Think That I Saw It on MULBERRY STREET by Dr. Seuss was Dr. Seuss’ first children’s book, in 1937! Marco walks to school along Mulberry Street keeping his eyes peeled for interesting sites to share with his dad. But today all he sees is a boring old horse and wagon. “That’s nothing to tell of, that won’t do, of course”. . . so Marco envisions much more exciting events, each more elaborate than the last. The horse and wagon turn into a zebra and charioteer, then to an elephant with a sleigh as Marco’s imagination goes on a wild ride down Mulberry Street.
Our Take: We love Dr. Seuss around here. My son listens to these books when we are out at the stores, grocery shopping or what not and they always keep him occupied. I would rather have him reading or reading along with the words than playing games all the time. Both of the books are funny too, with all the silly Seuss characters.
With both the apps, there are three ways that you can enjoy this 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!
