A Kindle is fine
if you're older than me
but what of you're only
a child of three?
Just text on a background
will never amuse
a demographic raised
on Dr. Seuss!
Bright colours and pictures
and nonsensical talk
are what tots are after —
Oh! How that would rock!
has taken Seuss titles
and apped them for iPhone —
electronic T. Geisel!
A readalong voiceover
and word recognition
are certain to hold
the most flighty attention
There's no Kindle or Spindle
from Amazon that
could hold half a candle
to The Cat in the Hat!
Alas, nothing's perfect
and this has flaws, too;
of all the Seuss titles,
they have only two.
