My twin boys (almost 7) really enjoyed this app. They have recently become really interested in where live and its' relation to everything else. This app made talking about this fun, educational and interactive for us. The Cat in the Hat is the perfect balance of silly and educational in this app and it was a huge hit with our family. I would highly recommend it! For more information and to purchase click HERE.
