Perfect for parents with 1-3 year olds, 'Pat the Cat' is a comical, interactive story book from best-selling authors Colin & Jacqui Hawkins. In 'Pat the Cat' children can control the story, jump to pages, replay characters and narration, even alter the settings to encourage vocal repetition. The app is enriched through a lot of interactive animations and funny sound effects. You can stroke Pat to hear him purr or tap his tail to hear him 'miaow', move Tat the Bat over the screen, let Nat the Rat squeaking and the caterpillars giggling.
The original book 'Pat the Cat' is written in a rhyming text in order to help children understand word formation. As each page turns a different consonant is introduced, creating a new word with the same short vowel sound - i.e. Pat, Cat, Hat, Mat. The large key word with its changing consonants encourages vocal repetition of the short 'a'.
