Elementary readers–both early, emerging, and independent–are all likely familiar with Dr. Seuss.
From the sing-song meter and mesmerizing cadence, to the outrageous narratives that keep readers engaged, Dr. Seuss books are a staple for elementary school class libraries, and children’s bookshelves at home.
Bringing him into the 21st century are reading apps–usually digital versions of books with mild interactivity added on. Listly user Katherine Page Burdick has gone through the trouble of linking to each of these apps on the iTunes app store, and further separating them by independent reading level. Brilliant! If you agree, give her a follow on Listly letting her know.
And for our Android readers, we’ll see if we can’t find the Google Play equivalent.
Or you could make one and let us know. ; ^ )

I have leveled many of the Dr. Seuss apps so you can use them with your iPad reading groups. Touch the title and you can buy the app direct. All links are to iPad version. Oceanhouse Media (www.oceanhousemedia.com) offers teaching lessons for many of these books as well. The grade level and month and the Text Leveling Code (TLC) indicate INDEPENDENT reading level. Children may always be introduced to text that is more difficult for them if there is an expert reader serving as a guide.
