The Lorax game app – FREE on Earth Day

Dr. Seuss’ classic turned into a game for  iPhone, iPad or Android, free this Friday, April 22.. Download the app from iTunes or the Android Marketplace to get an idea of how transmedia is changing the world of literature for today’s techie toddlers – and for you. Heck, even Jennifer Egan’s Pulitzer Prize winner, A Visit from the Goon Squad, has received the enhanced app treatment, as reported in this Audiobooker post on Digital Synchronicity. Seuss app publisher Oceanhouse Media has sold over one million downloads, complete with narration and interactive features, featuring favorite Seuss titles, the Berenstain Bears, Little Critter, and now Smithsonian Soundprints. You’ll find other free apps on their website, where you can learn more about the Lorax Garden game.

Take a look at the game here:
