10 iPad Apps for Toddlers


Dr. Seuss's ABC

Dr. Seuss's ABC teaches toddlers who are just starting to learn their ABCs through the humorous words and pictures. Costing $3.99, this app focuses on Dr. Seuss's original artwork while allowing toddlers to practice word association. As a voice reads the story, words are highlighted. When you touch a word on the screen, it zooms up, and the word is pronounced.

The app includes "Read to Me," "Read It Myself" and "Autoplay" features. The Autoplay feature reads the story aloud while toddlers follow along, allowing them to develop letter and word recognition skills. This app is great for long car rides with a toddler. In fact, it won a 2011 Parents' Choice silver award.
