Customer Reviews

Very short!

I already bought cat in the hat, green eggs, places, one fish two fish and was on the fence for this one during the $1 sale. I looked at reviews and everyone said this was their favorite growing up and kids love it so I bit.

I must say out all the apps I purchased this is my least favorite- and one fish two fish was not enjoyable but this is worse. Think the narrator is the same which I really disliked. The other narrators really get into the story and sell it. This narrator kind of just reads it.

I knew this was shorter than the other books but it seems like it is about 1/4 instead of the expected 1/2 of the others. It is a Dr. seuss book but somehow the rhyming isn't as present nor the whimsical factor. People said the music is scary. I found it distractingly too loud. Will need to test this on a kid next.

Great story

I like that kids can read at their own pace or have the story read to them automatically.

Love it!

My five year old and I LOVE this story and this app! It's entertaining, interesting and educational (for beginning readers). Also has a lovely lesson about our silly fears. Visually pleasing illustrations too.
