Oceanhouse Media has established the benchmark by which all mobile books apps should be judged. Their version of Dr. Seuss's THE CAT IN THE HAT is no exception. It's a marvelous picture book adaptation that is masterfully performed, easy to follow, and has a great educational bonus with its "tap words" feature. The original story -- which has always been perhaps Seuss's most famous -- is well presented here. This app is great.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
