Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this ebook version of Dr. Seuss's early-reader classic, Hop on Pop, is a very well-designed readalong storybook. Words are highlighted as they are spoken, so that kids can follow along more easily. Also, with just a tap, kids can see the name for -- and spelling of -- any person, place, or thing in the artwork.
Is it any good?
HOP ON POP, like the many other Dr. Seuss ebook apps from Oceanhouse Media, is exceptionally well done. This particular book has always been considered one of Seuss's best for very young, early readers -- and the app plays to that strength. Following along is made easy through the highlighting of words, and the ability to tap objects and see the words for them is a great bonus function. The story is read aloud with verve and enthusiasm by a wonderful actress, making the experience all the more fun for preschoolers.
