There’s a Wocket in My Pocket app

Dr. Seuss books have always been a favorite of mine. So it amazes me that in today’s digital age Dr. Seuss continues to delight my technologically savvy young children. They enjoy the predictable and witty rhyme schemes, the silly stories, and the simple, colorful drawings just as I did.

For these reasons, I was happy to see that a new app for “There’s a Wocket in My Pocket” stays true to the beloved classic story of a tour of a young boy’s house which he shares with many unusual, out-of this-world creatures.

The app provides several options including “Read to Me”, “Read it Myself”, and “Auto Play”. “Read to Me” allows the user to “turn the pages” with the swipe of a finger. Tap finger on an object and its name pops up and is spoken out loud by the narrator, a friendly “any mom.” For children eager to read, but not quite there yet, individual words are highlighted as the story is read for easy following along. “Read to Myself” is for more fluent readers and lets children read and turn the pages at his/her own pace. “Auto Play” is perfect entertainment for a preschooler in the backseat of the car while stuck in traffic.

The sound effects are clever and the made-up words like “jertain” and “zlock” are catchy. My little ones keep going back to this app despite the lack of bells and whistles seen in other apps for early readers. This Dr. Seuss app does what Dr Seuss books do best – engages young imaginations and makes (pre-) reading fun.
