Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this faiithful ebook version of Dr. Seuss' Oh, the Places You'll Go is incredibly well made for the purpose of having very young children follow along and learn new words as they do. The highly metaphorical story (the entire tale is an allegory about the ups and downs of life), does contain some dark and spooky sections, though. Parents should also be aware that the book is written to a specifically male reader, and as it is essentially a pep talk about succeeding in life, that may bother some young girls.

Is it any good?


OH, THE PLACES YOU'LL GO is a Dr. Seuss classic beloved by many for its inspirational "you can do it!" tone. This ebook version is remarkably well done -- as are most all the ebook apps from Oceanhouse Media -- and captures the original tone very well. The app includes a wonderful reading performance, a display that pans across the artwork and refocuses attention at all the right moments, and a perfectly designed, easy-to-use interface.
