5.0 out of 5 stars The best natural development in reading skills., April 11, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Oh, the Places You'll Go! - Dr. Seuss (App)
I was worried that I was slacking off by having the Kindle read the Sues stories, but from the first sit down we still read them together so shared time is not lost. AaaaaaND! A wondrous thing happened: My four year old had been hearing these stories for so long that he basically has them memorized verbatim by sight of the page. Now, that as the application read to him, HE STARTED READING ALONG WITH THE NARRATOR!!! This was a shock and awe moment that gave me great pride in my choice. The words highlight in read as the narrator reads and so this was the best natural progression in my son's reading development. Also, the touch feature speaks and pulls the word into big form so he is learning the Sues cache of common words at an astounding rate.
Don't be a "I-actually-read-to-my-child" snob because your child's development could be so much greater if you introduce these apps after they "appear" to read the book themselves when actually, they are just mimicking and memorizing.
