Description

"The Cat in the Hat - Read & Learn" is a deluxe digital storybook app full of delightful animations, hidden surprises, and new educational enhancement that bring Dr. Seuss's beloved beginner book to life like never before. Tap, drag, and tilt to explore every page and play over 30 Common Core aligned learning activities designed to help kids ages 4 to 6 practice spelling, rhyming, and other key early literacy skills.

Review Highlights:

This is a great app for beginning readers. Follow along with the highlighted words to enjoy a Dr. Seuss classic. Reading skills are encouraged and reinforced, as well as fine motor skills.

I liked the options of being able to turn the voice reader on and off for different levels of readers. Also the ability to have background sounds on or off. The sounds are fun, but if a parent wants a little less 'noise' while in public, it's a nice option. Finding the star hiding on each page and the extra learning activity that goes along with it makes this more than just a book to read.

Dr. Seuss is a classic! I'm glad to see his books are still inspiring children today. This is a fun app for children to use and easily adapts to different skill levels. My seven-year-old can read the story to himself or to his little sister, or follow along with the highlighted text. Then they take turns searching for the star and completing the additional learning activities on each page. My five-year-old is a beginning reader and she likes to listen to the story being read. With a little encouragement from family, she's able to read some of the story on her own, with the activities as a reward for her effort. The way the characters move when looking for the star is entertaining for my children, and I approve of the extra learning interaction of the activities. This app is just like bringing the book to life, with my children as the puppet masters. Dr. Seuss lives for another generation of new readers!
