Fabulous my 4 year old daughter absolutely adores Dr Seuss stories and we just listened to this story. A Godsend for when she is bored!
I bought this when it first came out and now after this last update it says it is unlicensed... Update: now it is working.
There was no sounds thru the middle part
How do I get money back. It constantly force closes on my epic
Awesome application! My toddler grandson is entertained with all of the Oceanhouse media stories. Thank you.
WORST APP EVER !!!! Stops narratoring right in the middle of the story ! I uninstalled & reinstalled to give Oceanhouse another chance but it stopped
Impressive! Amazing! My 3 yr old is in awe still
Great. Well done! Use of a Tad bit more color would be nice.
