A Classic made Interactive
on June 26, 2011
This is by far my favorite Dr. Seuss book, and my 18-month son loves to "read" it with me every day right after dinner!
He is a very hands-on child, and I love the fact that it reacts to his screen taps to show him the word as well as "speak" the word related to what he touched - "Tree", "Car", "Train", "Sam", "Sam's Friend", "Fox", "Box", etc. He is just starting to add to his vocabulary and has already picked up on "Tree" and "Sam". He also recognizes many of the things in the book after only a few times through it. When we're not reading on the Android, he can find "Green Eggs and Ham" on the bookshelf, and can pick out by sight dozens of the things he sees in the interactive version.
The narrator has a very peppy and a soothing voice. The response of the screen is fast, and if my son wants to keep touching things on the screen to find the tree or car again and again, the page won't turn and continue the book until he's ready. The pace of the book is right on the money if you just let it play, or flipping pages at a leisurely pace.
While this interactive book may not teach him to read, I feel it will keep him interested in the stories and make him more apt to read a bit earlier than other children which has the potential to make him a better student when he starts in school!
If you have a child of any age (or just a child at heart yourself), pick-up at least one of these interactive Dr. Seuss books for your Android device. You'll love it as much as we do, and will probably purchase more soon!
