Android App Tablet Review: The Cat in the Hat

by Caitlin M. Foyt

The Cat in the Hat for Android tablets really freshens up an old classic.

With most tablets being the same size as a children's book, it’s like the story has been magically brought to life. The app features professional narration, suspenseful music and cinematic sound effects.

The app is a kind of digital pop-up book, in which users can touch objects or words. The narrator will speak the word aloud and send text floating across the screen. Young users can also learn to read by following along with the story as each word turns bold as it is read aloud by the narrator. Older readers can improve their reading skills by selecting the option to read the story quietly to themselves.

This is a very fun, easy to use app that even the smallest of children will have no difficulty enjoying on an Android tablet.
