Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Parents who want easy access to some of the most well-loved titles in kids' literature will find this collection more than satisfactory. The digital versions of Dr. Seuss' books are faithful copies of the originals. Kids have multiple options for interacting with the text, including making and listening to personal recordings. Narrations are engaging, and word highlighting helps kids follow along as the narrator reads. Books have limited interactive features, such as tapping items to see them named and labeled, but that option can be turned off, which can help kids focus more fully on the story itself. Unfortunately, these reading preferences (e.g., sound effects, interactive features) must be adjusted in each individual book. It would be nice to be able to save your preferences across all books. Books must be downloaded individually, which does take up room on your device, but also allows for offline access. There are some features missing from Dr. Seuss Treasury that parents may like to see in such a digital library, such as marking favorites and the ability to see which books have been downloaded. Holding a real book in your hands and turning real paper pages is a priceless and important experience for kids. But, Dr. Seuss Treasury offers high-quality digital versions at a fraction of the price of building a traditional collection, and in a format that takes up much less room and is more portable. The subscription model is questionable, as there's no indication that the content will ever change or grow. However, it's worth checking out, at the very least for an introduction to the world of Dr. Seuss.

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.
