Dr. Suess ebook apps now available for Android

These titles had been available in iTunes, and now Oceanhouse Media have expanded to the Android Market. From the press release: Oceanhouse Media, Inc. announced today that two of their best-selling digital children’s book apps are now available for Android™ 2.1 (or higher) devices. Initial offerings in Android Market™ include The Cat In The Hat, and, just in time for the holidays, How The Grinch Stole Christmas!, each available for the low price of $3.99.

The Cat in the Hat and How The Grinch Stole Christmas!, both written by Dr. Seuss in 1957, have been adapted for the first time to interactive book format for Android devices. Both were initially introduced by Oceanhouse Media as iOS apps (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad). The iOS apps have been runaway hits, ranking among the best selling apps in the Books category last year. Oceanhouse Media’s Dr. Seuss apps have received critical acclaim and won numerous awards from various organizations, such as Parent’s Choice Awards and Children’s Technology Review.

As with all of Oceanhouse Media digital books, these interactive apps are engaging and educational. 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 original text and artwork with professional narration, custom background music and audio, special effects and features that entertain and promote reading, these digital books appeal to readers of all ages.

“Generations have grown up reading books by Dr. Seuss. Now this generation can enjoy digital versions of those books on their Android devices,” said Susan Brandt, President of Dr. Seuss Enterprises. “We have found a wonderful partner in Oceanhouse Media and are thrilled with the quality and features of the Dr. Seuss apps.”

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
