More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 5+.

This great game invites preschool aged children to learn and identify letters and their sounds (phonics), using trains and railroads as their tools.

What will my children learn?
With Kids ABC Trains, your preschool-aged kids will learn each letter's name and sound, will trace letter shapes, will identify letters in context, and will match lower to upper case letters.

The game has 5 activities:

1. Build the Railroad. This activity is a fun way for kids to learn the name and the appearance of each letter in the alphabet. Kids will enjoy as each station lights up with the announcement of a letter.

2. Drive the Train. Kids get to practice making their very own letters, both upper and lower cases, by carefully tracing the letter on a railroad track with their choice of train car.

3. Garages with Surprises. Kids are now tested to see if they can find the right letter. They need to open the correct garage, in order for their engine to drive there and pull out a cargo car with a surprise.

4. Phonics Cargo Train. This activity teaches kids to identify correct letter sounds within the context of words. Kids job is to load the right cargo boxes into the train.

5. Engine Search. Children get to think fast on their feet as they match upper and lower case letters before the trains have time to move away. Phonics is reinforced when they hear the letters' sounds after they make the correct match.

    My son loves this so much.

    My kiddo is a little ahead of other kids his age. He will be two in May. But he loves trains and has so much fun with matching the letters with the traincars. I love playing this with him. If your kiddo is 2-4 years old this game will be amazing!

    Great Game!

    This is a great game for kids of various ages. My kids don't spend a lot of time on my Nook, but when they do I want it to be educational. My 2 year old is getting great fine motor and letter recognition and my daughter is working on reading!

    Great app for kids learning their letters!

    My son is already past this honestly, but he still enjoys the games. Some are very easy while others are a little more challenging. After several letters, a sticker is awarded. After completing a whole game, new train engines are availale for the children to choose.

    This makes it exciting for the kids. I even enjoy playing along with him.

    Well worth the money - it makes me wish I had a Nook when my child was first learing his letters!

    This app is among my train-loving, almost-two-year-old son's favorite games (right up there with Tally Tots and Alpha Tots, previously undefeated favorites). He needed help with a few of the features at first, but he loves the game enough to persist and he's becoming very adept at tracing letters with his little fingers. I'm definitely happy with this purchase.

    my 5 y/o grandson loves this game

    Loving trains as he does, I thought it would be a clever way to reinforce his letter recognition. These little games are very good for helping preschoolers learn to draw their letters, reinforce alphabetical order and follow instructions.

    Grandson loves trains. Game is a hit!

    Lots of fun for him. He enjoys the music and earning the badges. He plays the game in the car independently (( because he is in the back seat).
    He is almost 3 years old.

    Amazing game for youngsters. My grandson won't stop playing it for hours. He has covered the "feltboard" with badges
    and loves earning more. Well done!

    It's really cute

    I really like this app. I got it for my Grandson who is three..he just loves it. He likes to get the badge at the end of each excersize. The only problem I'm having, and maybe it's because I have a Nook Color, but it'll freeze up after a while. Other than that I'm really glad I got it.
