Do you like green eggs and ham?
Would you like them in a house?
Would you like them with a mouse?

The highly anticipated and best-selling children’s classic Dr. Seuss eBook — Green Eggs and Ham — is now available on the iPhone and iPad in a universal app. Along with “Green Eggs and Ham,” Oceanhouse Media has also released Hop on Pop, an early reader favorite, as well as the short story, Gertrude McFuzz.

The Dr. Seuss eBooks offer three modes of reading — “Read to Me”, “Read It Myself”, and “Auto Play.” You and your child can read have the eBook narrate the story as they swipe and turn the pages, turn off the narration, or even have the eBook auto-play the entire book.

Like the other Dr. Seuss eBook apps, they’re universal, looking beautiful on both the iPhone and iPad. High-resolution graphics have been added, making them look amazing on the iPhone 4.

iPhone App Review: Grinchmas

If you’re looking for a casual holiday game, this one will surely hit the spot! “Grinchmas” let’s you play the part of Mr. Grinch on Christmas Day. If you’re feeling like a mean grinch, you can throw snowballs at the houses in Who-ville. If you’re feeling like Mr. Nice Grinch, you can shower the houses with gifts!

The game is pretty simple. There are two gaming modes — Mean Grinch or Merry Grinch.

GrinchmasIn “Mean Grinch” mode, the houses in Who-ville are making too much noise for the Grinch. Splat each noisy Who house with a snowball to quiet them down. Do this by simply swiping the phone / iPod Touch. Keep throwing snowballs and see how long you can last!

In “Merry Grinch” mode, the object is to deliver matching colored presents to the Who houses within 2 minutes. Swipe the iPhone / iPod Touch to toss the presents. As each present gets delivered, the Grinch’s heart grows bigger and bigger. The Grinch’s heart grows smaller if the present and house colors are mismatched. How big can you make his heart grow?

The two modes are both simple and fun. I find that aiming at the houses can be a tough though. It may just be because I need a lot of practice. The speed and accuracy of the swipe will determine if the snowball/present hit the right house.

Grinchmas It’s fun for the whole family, even big kids like you! Grinchmas is available in the iTunes App store for just $1.99!
