The FOOT Book - Dr. Seuss

Buy $3.99

This is a very fun book app and a nice addition to any educational library. It is one of the best digital options to teach about opposites and among the Seuss books aimed at young readers. Engaging in a way only Dr. Seuss can be, this book demonstrates through whimsical illustrations concepts like dry/wet, slow/fast, big/small and even his/her. The story follows a Seussical looking character who is exploring all the kinds of feet, starting with left and right.

In print, this book has been a favorite of kids and their parents since it's publication in 1968. This one stands out for its emphasis on opposites and is among the Seuss books that stick to sight words for the benefit of 'learner readers'. Like the other titles from Oceanhouse Media, this book also has an eye on educational enhancements. For the read-a-long effect, each word is highlighted as it is read. Tap on any word to hear it spoken, even in the 'read-it-myself' mode. These book apps also have ample settings, with the absence of only one thing I would suggest - a page guide.

For interactivity, most of the items pictured in the story react to a light tap with a visual image of the word with accompanying audio (for example, tap on the feet on most pages and the word "feet" appears with audio saying “feet”. If the image tapped is also represented in the text on that page, the word(s) will highlight as well.

In digital form, Seuss book apps are often even more fun than in print and this one is no exception. This title is also one of the shorter Seuss books, making it a nice bedtime read. A must for any digital Seuss collection for young readers!
