If you’ve been following many Early Childhood Education blogs, you might have noticed there’s been many cute Dr. Seuss-related crafts and activities being shared. As I was thinking about what to write, many of my own childhood Dr.Seuss memories came flooding back—such as waiting for the one time of year The Grinch and The Cat and the Hat would be actually be on t.v. (Yes, there was a time where you had to wait to watch a program. 🙂
My 5yr. old and 3yr. old though, have experienced Dr. Seuss in a totally different way than I ever did— on the iPad.

My daughters can access many of the classic Dr. Seuss iPad books at the touch of a finger. The books can play like a movie, be read alone, or read aloud.

In addition, if my girls touch some of the words or objects in the pictures, the iPad tells them the word. They are able to have an interactive reading experience.

My girls have been enjoying Dr. Seuss on the iPad. We often use the stories as a type of “listening center” during the day. Sometimes I pair hands-on activities to go along with the books, such as the Wocket in my Pocket game and craft we did after reading the book on the iPad.

Yes, the iPad and other e-readers open up a whole different world of silly Seussical, rhyming reading memories for children.
