The Cat in the Hat is one of my absolute favorite reads of all time. The app features all the amazing and unique drawings that really make Dr. Seuss books stand out. The app even allows for you to pan and zoom through the pictures so that kids can easily recognise the characters, even on a tiny screen. The Cat in the Hat – iPhone App Review.
The app features a read aloud feature and a read by myself feature which is great for younger and older kids so that they can get the kind of reading experience as far as Dr. Seuss books are concerned. There is even more to this app, it gets on you, you don’t want to close the book, you feel like reading it on and on. When you touch something in the picture, such as the net, the word will show on the screen. It appears large next to the object and is even highlighted everywhere that it appears in the story. Even better the word is said aloud to help children associate the object with both how the word looks and sounds.
I don’t think anything would replace the feel of an actual book, but this totally feels like you’re reading an actual book. The Cat in the Hat is perhaps the most memorable of the Dr. Seuss books. This app is available for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, for 2.99$ on the app store, It’s a Bargain!
