Best for: Interactive books, Attention & concentration, Early literacy, Interaction, Language, Understanding of the world

What it is: an interactive book from the Cat in The Hat's Learning Library about whales, dolphins and porpoises..

What you do with it: two modes of 'reading' the book: listen to the narration and follow the text or read the story yourself (or have the story read to you by a parent). Touch the objects on pages and their name will be displayed and read out. Touch highlighted ('difficult') words and their meaning will be explained. Tap on the objects for explanation of concepts (e.g. watch animations explaining the difference between fish and whale tail movements).

What we liked: the story, good educational value, the interactive 'extras', excellent reading options (words are highlighted, you can touch a word to have it read out, you can touch and hold the words to repeat a paragraph), professional narration, sounds and sound backgrounds, the visual clues.

What we didn't like: we would like to see more interactive elements, animations and quiz-like activities.



Bottom line: another recommended book from the Cat in The Hat's Learning Library series!
