More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 0-4.

Easy and fun way for kids to learn their ABCs!

This is the evolution of the ABC board book in multimedia format. It provides illustrations of the alphabet through charming photographic images of everyday, fun objects and animals.

* more than 100 images
* each letter has 2-5 photographic illustrations.

It goes beyond board books and flashcards: tap on any word and it plays the voiceover. Tap on a letter and it plays the letter.

This allows children to associate images, shapes and sounds, as well as practice fine motor skills while building their early vocabulary.

Flick LEFT to RIGHT to navigate from one letter to the next. Flick UP and DOWN to see a new illustration for the same letter. This reinforces the learning experience and the associations between letters and sounds.

NOTE: If you can't hear the words, please make sure your volume is up!

If you have problems and/or suggestions please write to NOOKabc@tipitap.com

    Great pics, clear sound

    My son loves this. The app reads the words, then I repeat and have him also. Silly me, I just discovered that if you scroll down, it gives you more objects for each letter!

    A hit

    The baby loves this. He is trying to get the hang of flicking through the letters. My older kids love to use it to "teach the baby" It's fun.

    Awesome sound / sight association!

    This app is perfect for preschoolers and toddlers as well as special needs students who use assistive technology. I have a few struggling readers in my classroom that will benefit from the picture and sound associations made with the entire alphabet. Highly reccomended!

    Boringgggg!

    Says my 4 year old grand-daughter. She loves most of the apps but she could not even get to the letter "f" before she pushed it away. It show a picture, the letter and then the name. It is truly a waste of space and money. In less then ten minutes it was deleted.

    Having sound problems. Here is the fix.

    Under NOOK Color Settings, then Sounds, make sure to turn up your media volume to a higher level. That should fix your sound problems.

    Not as interesting to a 2 year old as I thought it would be.

    Doesn't keep a 2 year olds attention very well, she gets bored with it quickly.

    Check spelling of yak

    This app is ok. It has nice pictures. 'Yak' is spelled 'yack'. Might want to fix that. How would people get a corrected version?

    Do you need sound?

    If you don't have good sound, go to your settings. Click sounds or volume. Turn up your media setting. I did this and the app works wonderfully now.

    Nice

    I really like this app, and so does my two year old. We like that each letter has more than one picture for association. Also that he can go backwards and forwards through the alphabet, but it's still simple enough for him to use on his own.

    Great visuals but poor sound quality. I am using with hearing impaired children but I need to voice even though I have my NOOK at full volume.

    Love it!

    Each letter has more than one picture. It also says the letter and the object so your child can hear the letter and the sound in words. Very Easy to use. My toddler and my preschooler can both use and and LOVE IT!

    Great for toddlers

    Perfect, simple entertainment for my 19month old. Nice clear images & audio. There are several different word examples for every letter so its lengthy & not boring. Easy to move through. Much more to offer than the boardbook version!

    Basically its like flash cards

    Kind of boring to my 4yr old. Would be better if it had more options and was more interactive.

    Great flashcards!

    Gorgeous pics, nice recordings, and for less than a buck! Paper cards or an abc book are $ 4.99 and up. A bargain of an educational tool.
