Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this ebook version of Dr. Seuss's Gertrude McFuzz is a great, if short, read-along app for young kids just learning to read. Words are highlighted as they are spoken aloud, making it very easy for children to follow along with the text.
Is it any good?
GERTRUDE MCFUZZ, a be-careful-what-you-wish-for fable, may not be one of Dr. Seuss most-read works, but it's still a wonderful story. And it is given a very fine ebook adaptation in this app. The story is beautifully read aloud by an excellent actress, with each word highlighted as spoken so kids can easily follow along. A great feature (included in all of Oceanhouse Media's Dr. Seuss book apps) lets kids tap on objects in the illustrations to see and hear the names of those things. This is one of Seuss's shorter books, but the lower price tag on the app reflects that.
