Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose is following along with his herd when he happens upon a Bingle Bug looking for a ride. Thidwick is happy to help out the Bingle Bug on his journey. As they continue more and more friends join the Bingle Bug on Thidwicks antlers. All the travelers begin to take advantage of poor Thidwicks good nature. For those unfamiliar with the story, I will not spoil the ending and how Thidwick gets out of the predicament with all the unwanted and ungrateful guests.

In true Seuss style, the story is full of wonderfully creative rhymes and drawings. Children will be captivated by the story and the added depth of sound effects and narration only available in this app. Like all Dr Seuss stories, this one provides a strong storyline with a clear moral lesson all children can benefit from hearing.

This app overs all the great features available in Oceanhouse Media's book apps. Children can select from Auto Play, Read to Me or Read It Myself options. There is even the ability to record personalized narration. Within the story, a child can tap individual words to have them read aloud as well as images to have items identified. This is a top rate story presented in a high quality fashion we have come to expect from Oceanhouse Media.

Be sure to enter our giveaway for a chance to win one of five free copies. Giveaway will run through May 2nd.
