Curious George's Dictionary

       iOS iPhone

The world’s most curious monkey investigates new words in this fully interactive picture dictionary for young children. Both entertaining and educationally sound, it features charming illustrations and reflects recent research in early childhood literacy. Children can navigate from A to Z with simple swipes and taps, through nearly six hundred words.

To use:
- Scroll back and forth along the alphabet menu. Tap the picture to hear the letter or section read aloud, and tap the blue letter box to go there.

- On each vocabulary page:
- Swipe left and right for new words in alphabetical order.
- Tap the blue house (top right) to return to the main alphabet menu.
- Tap the screen to hear the word read aloud.
- Tap the blue letter box (bottom right) to bring up a secondary menu bar. Scroll left and right along the bar to skip quickly to different words. Tap the box again to hide.

Also included:

- “How To” is an illustrated user’s guide to the application.

- “Learn,” an illustrated story, shows George learning to look up words in his dictionary, drawing children in while introducing them to dictionary skills.

- “Numbers,” “Quantities,” “Colors & Shapes,” and “Opposites” present thematic vocabulary groupings with whimsical illustrations.
