Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

FEATURES
- Uses a very simple print based font, meaning the letters look like the letters they are taught to write.
- The font is made as large as possible so that the child's finger can point at each letter as they sound it out.
- The verses are alliterative and/or rhyming to promote phonemic awareness.
- The child is asked to find the target word on a screen of words that sound and are spelled similarly. The puzzles encourage the child to look for patterns in the words to find the correct answer.
- The book is filled mostly with phonetically spelled words.
- There are sixteen target words for a total of 64 pages.
- The target words are Cat, Dog, Cow, Baby, Duck, Dino, Pig, Truck, Bug, Rose, Slug, Vase, Boat, Nail, Tree and Moon.
- There is a read-to-me button that can be removed through an options menu.

    Great idea!

    It's a great interactive tool idea and isn't bad to start. I have an almost 3 year old who can read some words and identify most of the alphabet. About the same level of a beginning kindergartener.

    She was a little discouraged by the buzzer and maybe it would be an option to have the incorrect word said out loud or "try again." She did LOVE the fanfare on the correct words! Maybe a picture of the correct word when guessed correctly would help with association.

    There is a very limited word bank and I hope it will be expanded in future updates.

    I gave the app 3 stars for good concept, exciting reward sound and effectiveness on the positive. Negatives would be limited use and features and the scary buzzer.

    Thanks for making it!

    It is perfect for my grandchildren

    This is a nice simple app. My grandkids feel proud when they read the words and pick the correct answer.

    The sound on this app is horrible! My child cannot even hear it with the volume turned all the way up!

    Do not recommend!
