Horton hears a who! is an e-book / audio book and is published by Oceanhouse Media.
This book gives you the options of reading the book yourself, having the read to you (and you control the page turns) or the complete book read to you automatically. The application also adds extra interaction by touching something on the screen the name appears in print and word is spoken.
The story is about Horton who hears a voice from a speck of dust, and then tries to protect it from the other animals who do not believe there are small creatures living on the speck of dust.
This book was also made into an animated film back in 2008.
This book is for kids and adults alike.
On the upside:
- Interactive with the book adds to the “re-readability” of the book.
- Universal for iPad and iPhone
On the downside:
- No page selector to jump into the story to your favorite bit of the book.
Overall, the book is one of my families favorites out of the Dr Seuss series of books, and are very happy to see it released by Oceanhouse Media.
