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
One 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!
