| July 19, 2010 | 16 Comments

Kid’s  Book and Kid’s iPhone App reviews continue. For my “reasons” behind “Why Apps?!” look here. Type “Kids” or “children” or “educational” into the Apple iStore and you get bombarded with Apps. Which to get?! Look no further…

ook Review – Dr Seuss One Fish, Two Fish Nursery edition

Dr. Seuss Nursery - One Fish, Two Fish, Three, Four, Five Fish!: Bead BookOne Fish, Two Fish Nursery Edition. Dr Seuss. We all know and love Dr Seuss. I didn’t actually grow up with it, so for me every “new” book is a new discovery. However, I particularly like this Dr Seuss’s nursery edition. Not only do you get the wonderful One Fish, Two Fish counting book, with the marvelous Dr Seuss illustrations and trademark rythm, but the 5 little fish on the top act as counters. Red Ted (2.5yrs) and Pip Squeak, just play with them, but still, counters they are. Something is going somewhere subconsciously! Also means, that Pip Squeak likes this book a lot earlier than she may have done. (Oh and you get to explore colours too!).

Kid’s iphone App Review: Dr Seuss’s ABC

Dr Seuss’s ABC. I am a Kid’s iPhone App convert and do let Red Ted play every so often (under supervision, as he accidently deletes stuff!). My most recent acquisition is the Dr Seuss ABC App. Now, how can you feel bad if the little one is learning the alphabet. What I really like about this App, isn’t just the Dr Seuss drawings and colours, but in particularly the music and voiceover. Both done very nicely, with a lovely flowing rhythm to it. Brilliant. Also, tap on an image and the word will appear. Will definitely help with literacy skills! (0r so I tell myself! ). Red Ted really enjoys this App.  At 2.5yrs I thought he may be too  young for it, but he isn’t. I think he likes the music but also the words appearing and scrolling along the pages. For older children, you can switch the sound off and they can “read to themselves”. The tapping and scrolling still works!

    I remember reading the Dr. Seuss books to my son when he was little. He got great enjoyment out of them and I believe helped him learn to read faster. Great post.

    I still love anything Suessian. Technology sure has inserted itself everywhere these days.

  11. Love the counters on the fish book – very friendly to little fingers!

  12. Ticia says:

    I’ve never quite broken down and bought an app for the kids. So far I’ve only used the free ones.

    • Red Ted Art says:

      Oh the free ones are great too. Especially the “Lite” versions – will do a few review of those soon too! Definitely not to be knocked!

  13. Dr Suess books are not my favorites, because of all their strange words, but I do like One Fish, Two Fish, and Green Eggs and Ham :)

  14. teachingyoungchildren says:

    Thanks for joining WMCIR! I get iApps from time to time for Anna too, and it’s nice for the times when we have to wait. My IRL friend has a nice site with reviews for iApps – http://apps4ikids.com/

  15. What a fun addition to our Alphabet Soup this week!

    I purchased an entire set of Dr. Seuss books at a garage sale a month or so ago…and that is all the Grands want read to them!

    It will be fun to see this new technology! Although I suspect I will be wayyy too challenged by it!

    Thanks for linking!

    It is sure turning into a delicious pot of soup!

    A+
