DR SEUSS BRINGS a lot of joy into the lives of our fledgling readers. It is especially joyful with Seuss on screen.
"I like it best when I press on words," says our back seat tester. Mia knows that pressing on words causes the narrator to shout them out. Pressing on objects gets them identified with written and spoken text. This pleasant result makes "Warren K Mooney Won't You Please Go Now" a lot of fun for little fingers.
Sitting in the corner, Mia has flattened the iPad while testing her memory of characters and words. But even more intriguing is watching our 5yo showing our 1yo how to interact with words and characters on screen. I feel we have facilitated vibrant self-directed learning in our home and for that I think Apple deserves some credit.
