Description from the product page:
"Join The Cat in the Hat on a bird-watching tour as he takes Sally and Dick around the world to meet our fine feathered friends. Observe a variety of birds in their natural habitats such as ostriches, bee hummingbirds, flycatchers, bald eagles, penguins and more. Plus, see what's waiting for Sally and Dick when they return home in The Cat in the Hat's Fine Feather, All-Weather Flying Machine! Children will learn the common features of birds, the traits of the world's biggest and smallest birds and the different sounds that birds make. In addition, they'll discover fun facts along the way by tapping on instant glossary words in bold."
* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and the words pop out to tell you what it is!
* I like the storyline where it teaches us all about our feathered friends, the birds. The parts on their body, the different type of birds in the world, the sounds they make and so on.
* For example, at the picture below, I love that I can show my boy the body parts on a bird and I go on to explained to him why birds have beaks and not mouth like us humans.
* I find myself learning new things too such as the male Emperor penguin guarding over its eggs until they hatches! An eye opener!
