Good to hear your thoughts William, we’ll have to look at solutions to your suggestion that retain the fun animations and learning activities millions are enjoying in these apps! Some folks may prefer to enjoy Dr. Seuss Treasury on the App Store which includes all 55 of the classic Dr. Seuss book apps (and the classic page turns.) Thanks for starting the conversation and please continue it with me at

Love this!


I didn’t know what to expect, how can you improve on this classic? But, Wow! This is so smart and easy to use. What I love most it is hasn’t taken away from the old fashion Dr. Seuss charm while making it as modern and relevant as any cutting edge app out there. I think I love it as much as my kids do!



The pages are alive with animation and sounds. My kids love exploring every page to see what the Cat or the silly Things will do. Completing special learning activities (spelling, rhyming, etc.) on every page helps me know my children are improving their reading skills.
