Dr. Seuss Birthday In 2011: 3 apps, activities for kids

Tomorrow sees the birthday of Dr. Seuss, the famous American writer and cartoonist, who wrote over sixty children’s books. To celebrate the great man we thought we would compile a list of apps which are based on his work.

One of the most famous pieces of Seuss work was The Cat in the Hat; this is available for iOS devices. This combines the original text and artwork of Dr. Seuss, and will promote reading and entertain. This is available on the App Store for $2.99/£1.79.

Dr. Seuss ABC has individual words that are highlighted as the story is read and words zoom up when the pictures are touched. Professional audio narration is included with gorgeous artwork by Dr. Seuss. There is also custom background audio for each scene. This is also priced at $2.99/£1.179 on the App Store.

A really fun application which will really entertain young children and adults alike any time of year is Dr Seuss. Camera – The Grinch Edition. Users can take pictures with the Seuss characters or even become the Grinch.

You can personalize cards that have comical and colorful stamps. Grinchmas cards can even be emailed to friends and family or saved to your family. Find this on the App Store for $0.99/£0.59.

Do you know any other good Dr. Seuss apps?
