Celebrate Grandparents Day with two Great omBooks!

Friday, September 9th, 2011

This Sunday, September 11th, is Grandparents Day! What is your family doing to celebrate? Whatever your plans are, check out these two fun omBooks, on sale on The App Store and Android Market.

Dr. Seuss wrote “You’re Only Old Once!” shortly after going through a series of illnesses during which he spent a considerable amount of time in hospital waiting rooms. For fun, he began sketching images of hospital machines and scenes of medical procedures, and later began to work those ideas into a book. Also known as Dr. Seuss’s book for obsolete children, this omBook is sure to bring laughs as it reminds us “You’re in pretty good shape for the shape you are in!” On sale this weekend for just 2.99!

 

 

 

Another fun Grandparents Day app is Just Grandma and Me, by Mercer Mayer. This story follows Little Critter and his grandma as they enjoy a day at the beach, flying kites and building sand castles. A great reminder of the wonderful things our grandparents do for us, and it’s on sale this weekend for just 99 cents! What is your favorite memory of your grandparents?

Whatever you do, we hope you have a wonderful weekend, and remember to tell your grandparents how special they are! ♥
