"You must see Dr. Pollen, our Allergy Whiz, who knows every sniffle and itch that there is. He will check your reactions to thumbtacks and glue, catcher's mitts, leaf mould, and cardigans too."

If laughter is the best medicine, then "You’re Only Old Once!" is a delightful new defense against aging. Anyone who has ever submitted to a battery of medical tests will empathize with Dr. Seuss’s Everyman as we follow him through his checkup with the experts at the Golden Years Clinic. From the initial Eyesight and Solvency Test through all the stops along Stethoscope Row to finally being “properly pilled” and “properly billed, ” Dr. Seuss lightens the aches and pains of growing old with his inimitable wit and wisdom.

"You're Only Old Once!" was written shortly after Geisel had suffered through a series of illnesses, during which he spent a considerable amount of time in hospital waiting rooms. To pass the time, he began sketching images of hospital machines and scenes of medical procedures. He later began to work those ideas into a book.

"You're Only Old Once" was Seuss's first adult book since The Seven Lady Godivas was published in 1939. The book reached Number One on the New York Times Best Sellers List, and remained on the list for over 60 weeks.

New features only available in this interactive omBook for your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch include professional narration, background audio and enlarged artwork for each scene.  To promote reading in young children, individual words are highlighted as the story is read and words zoom up when pictures are touched. By combining the original text and artwork of Dr. Seuss with features that entertain and promote reading, this omBook appeals to readers of all ages.

Three ways to read this omBook:

★ "Read to Me" — listen to the narrated story with words highlighted as they are read

★ "Read it Myself" — read the book in its traditional form

★ "Auto Play" — plays like a movie, automatically reading and turning pages. Great for younger children!

Additional Features:

★ Picture / Word association — words zoom up and are spoken when pictures are touched

★ Professional audio narration

★ Custom background audio for each scene

★ Feautures the beautiful, original art of Dr. Seuss

★ This 'Universal App' is optimized for both iPhone4 and iPad

A Book for Obsolete Children

:
A great Dr. Seuss book, FOR ADULTS!

5/5 stars

my favorite Seuss book!

:
This book is geared towards the older set. I gifted it to my parents and they loved it! My children enjoy it too, but the humor is especially relevant to anyone that has gone through a battery of tests at the hospital... in fact, I've read that Dr Seuss was inspired to write this after such an experience in his later years. This book is for true Seuss fans, of which I am one!! :-)

5/5 stars

Have you ever been to the doctor?

:
Kids may enjoy this book, but I think it was written for an older crowd. Having been to the doctor a few too many times in my life, I can tell you that I can relate to much of what Seuss talks about in this story.
