5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful combination of learning and fun in an interactive book, January 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Just Lost - Little Critter (App)
This is my first experience with the "Little Critter" series, but I've reviewed several of the Dr. Seuss interactive children's books developed by Oceanhouse Media, and they've all been extremely well done. Oceanhouse has done a great job of creating an interactive book that holds kids' attention both with the storyline and the interactive features. It's also a marvelous learning experience as kids associate vocabulary words both visually and by the spoken word.

The story can be read in any of three modes:
1. Read the book yourself, swiping pages when you're ready for the next page.
2. Let a narrator read the book aloud, with you swiping the pages when you're ready for the next page.
3. Auto-Play. Same as #2, but the pages turn automatically.

The book is rated for all ages, but it's recommended for ages 2 - 5. The story of Little Critter becoming separated from mom and brother in a shopping mall is simple enough for even very young kids to understand. There are a lot of visual and sound effects, and kids can learn the simple vocabulary by touching objects. Also, the lesson about staying with a parent while in a crowd is made very dramatically.

To keep your kids' attention and add some more fun to the book, there's a little game inside the story. Look for the little mouse on most story pages and touch him. At the end of the story, there's a score, depending on how many were found.
