5.0 out of 5 stars One of the shorter Dr. Seuss stories, but still one of my favorites, March 11, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: What Was I Scared Of? - Dr. Seuss (App)
"The Sneetches and Other Stories" is a collection of stories by American author Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, that was published in 1961. The collection is composed of four separate stories: "The Sneetches," "The Zax," "Too Many Daves," and "What Was I Scared Of?"

This app is a digital version of the story "What Was I Scared Of?" You can read the story in your choice of three modes:

1. Read the book yourself.
2. Let a narrator read the book aloud, with you flipping the pages.
3. Let a narrator read the book aloud and flip the pages.

The book is rated for children (ages 9 and under), and even preschoolers should enjoy it in the narration mode. The story is simple enough for very young kids to understand. Like other Dr. Seuss stories, it's as much fun for grownups as it is for kids.

I've read a number of illustrated interactive book apps, and "What Was I Scared Of?" is as full-featured as any that I've seen. Kids will love touching objects and having the narrator pronounce the object's name as the spelling of the object is displayed. Another nice touch is that the words in the text are highlighted as the narrator pronounces them, which helps kids who are just learning to read to associate a word with a sound.
