What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this ebook rendition of Dr. Deuss's One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish is a faithful adaptation of the original classic, with the added educational value of "tap words" that connect any word in the text directly to its visual representation on the page (i.e., tap the image of the old fish, ad you will see and hear the words "old fish"). Preschoolers who want to read along with the app will have no problem doing so.

Is it any good?

Like all the Dr. Seuss ebook apps from Oceanhouse Media, ONE FISH, TWO FISH, RED FISH, BLUE FISH is an amazingly impressive product. The story is enthusiastically performed by a fine actress, the whimsical visuals are straight from the original Seuss book, and the controls for the app are wonderfully simple. These are as close to ideal as children's ebooks can get.
