The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this wonderful ebook adaptation of Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat is very faithful to the original beloved picture book. The Cat in the Hat is a charmingly funny rascal who creates a mess in the kids house while their parents are away. In the end, he cleans up his mess and is remorseful. Parents will probably want to deal with the story's message about two kids who let a stranger into their house because he promises them some fun. However, this story is such a delight to read with its great use of language, funny graphics, and the Cat's hilarious over-the-top antics.
Is it any good?
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.
