Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that What Was I Scared Of? is a digital version of the Dr. Seuss children's book whose message teaches children to tackle their fears of the unknown. The protagonist starts out being petrified by a pair of green pants (with no one inside them!) but eventually learns that the pants are just as afraid of him, resulting in the two becoming friends.
Is it any good?
Although the illustrations are somewhat subdued compared to other books in Dr. Seuss's catalog, this digital version of WHAT WAS I SCARED OF? still offers many fun ways for kids to interact with the story. Kids can read aloud themselves, tap a paragraph to hear it spoken, or listen to a wonderful narrator recite the whole story while following along with highlighted words. Kids can also tap on the scenery to learn words. Some tasteful animations that sweep across the page to focus on different parts of the illustration add yet another point of interest for young eyes.
