Product Description

Click here to see Aunt Annie riding on an alligator. Click there to meet a Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz. Only Dr. Seuss and Living Books could make the alphabet so unpredictably entertaining. More than 400 alphabetically inspired surprises hidden within 26 pages show children that learning words and letters can be fun and even silly! Izzy and Ichabod guide young readers through this action-packed title, which features Seuss's distinctive brand of humor, rhyme and illustration. (Ages 3-7)

Amazon.co.uk Review

ABC by Dr Seuss has to be one of the most entertaining ways for your child to learn about the alphabet. Derived from the timelessly popular Dr Seuss books with their special brand of humour, rhyme and illustration, this CD-ROM will provide endless fun and laughter, not only for the three- to seven-year-olds it is aimed at, but the parents too. Presented as pages of a book, the product is easy to use, animated throughout and highly interactive.

In the section "Read Me", Ichabod and Izzy guide your child through the alphabet, introducing them to Aunt Annie's Alligator, the Fiffer-Feffer-Feff and many more. Each letter of the alphabet has its own page and is shown in both upper and lower case. A zany scenario develops using that letter consistently. Even the goodbye on each page reflects the letter being worked on--Adios, Farewell Friends, Next and so on.

In the section "Play and Learn", the fun really begins. There are an amazing 400 alphabetical surprises hidden in the 26 pages of the ABC book and your child will want to find all of them! Mouse control will improve in this section as clicking almost anywhere produces mini sketches and songs. Your child will be enchanted by such sights as the barber playing boogie-woogie bass and the brief appearance of the Cat in the Hat.

The soundtrack is excellent throughout and your youngster can sing along with Ichabod and Izzy to the catchy and well-known ABC song.

Altogether this CD-ROM is a rare treat. (Even the animated credit titles under the Options menu are worth viewing.) It combines learning and fun in such a subtle way that it will be difficult for your child to distinguish between the two.

Unique, unpredictable, stimulating, surreal--the extraordinary world of Dr Seuss will prove to be an unforgettable experience. --Tracey Hogan

This is the best piece of software for young children that I have seen. It runs smoothly and easily on Windows or Mac. The drawings and animations are done in Dr Seuss's own surreally playful spirit. The surprises are charming and the music enchanting.
My daughter got this software when she was two and a half. She is fascinated by Ichabod and Izzy, loves Albert (Aunt Annie's alligator) and sings along enthusiastically with the ABC song. Unreservedly recommended - every home should have one.

My children were given this as a present a while ago and it has proved to be a delight for the entire family. Its educational, funny and full of surprises. Even after using it over and over again my children are still finding things they've missed before. Great value, great fun and very good for learning mouse control. Anything thats educational, giggle worthy and entertaining for the onlooking adult has got to be worth every penny.

Everyone in our family thinks this CD is absolutely fantastic.
The animation is great, the music has you tapping your feet and there are so many wonderful little surprises along the way that it remains entertaining for months and months.
This CD was my 3 year old daughter's first introduction to using a computer and she was so taken with it in less than an hour she could control the mouse as well as me! Infact after a week or so we had to start limiting the amount of time she could spend playing with the CD as she just doesn't want to switch it off!

Sorry, didn't like this very much. My son (3 years old) thought it was boring after being used to playing more interactive and exciting games. Songs are catchy and there is lots of interactive objects to click on, but it really is best suited for children who are much younger, or for children to practice their mouse skills. Older, more competent children won't find it 'fun' enough. Sorry to disagree with the other reviews but we didn't like it!
