Giveaway for a Classic Dr. Seuss book app -The FOOT Book

Phonemic awareness including rhyming is a huge part of our preschool curriculum. I love using book apps to work on these important skills. Who does rhyming better than Dr. Seuss?  The FOOT Book - Dr. Seuss app features all the classic rhymes and illustrations along with wonderful narration and customization features. This particular Dr. Seuss book is great because it highlights loads of opposite concepts within the story. Tappable words/pictures, highlighted narration and custom recording options make this a top notch addition to any book app library.  Download The FOOT Book - Dr. Seuss or enter to win a free copy courtesy of Oceanhouse Media.
