The publishing company behind a number of popular Dr. Seuss iOS apps has put most of its collection on sale in celebration of Theodore Geisel's birthday -- the real Dr. Seuss.

The sale runes through March 7th, cutting the prices for all the Dr. Seuss digital books and offering the Dr. Seuss Cat in the Hat camera app free.

"We’re delighted to tip our hats to Dr. Seuss and say 'Happy Birthday' with a huge app sale,” said Michel Kripalani, president of Oceanhouse Media.

Plus, now all iOS versions of our Dr. Seuss book apps include a fantastic record and share feature that lets you be the narrator of your favorite Dr. Seuss story and then share your reading with friends and loved ones."

The company says all 44 of Dr. Seuss' books will be available as iOS apps by the end of the summer.

Books on sale include The Lorax, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, Hop on Pop, The Sneetches, Horton Hears a Who!, The Cat in the Hat, If I Ran the Circus, and more.

The "real" Dr. Seuss? I didn't know there was a phony one.

I was, am, a huge lover of 'GO DOG GO'. I would look at those pictures over and over again. A friend next door was an only child who had the entire collection. My brother and I spent many a day over there, he playing with Hot Wheels and I reading from his little library.

Nothing was better than the Living Books versions of these. The Oceanhouse Media iPhone/iPod/iPad versions are shocking in comparison. Everything you touched would come alive - talk, dance, run, etc. There were some really cool mini games in there too (the later titles in the series had them anyway). They used to occupy me for hours and hours everyday as a kid. Green Eggs and Ham was particularly really good.

It doesn't get better than that IMO, and is a reason why I still have my CDs in a drawer. Educational software was miles better in the 90's and I've dug them up a few times for my brother to use when he was younger.

And yeah, these are always being discounted. Google Play always sticks a few for 10-25 cents whenever they have a sale. They're not very interactive, and they would be better as ebooks.

My 4-year old son loves Cat in the Hat, Cat Comes Back, Green Eggs and Ham, and The Lorax. The app faithfully reproduces the book with excellent voice narration, with tasty retina graphics.

Having said that, these books are very frequently on sale, about once every 3 months.
