    Good app for letters

    This is great for kids to learn letters and word families. It is difficult to get back to the home page to change levels though.

    Great letter teaching app!

    I got this for my four year-old to practice writing his letters and he loves it! We use only the uppercase and lowercase letters part, and it is awesome. He can choose what color to trace the letters and when he's done tracing he can write his own letters in the space beside the one he traced. Also, the app doesn't try to correct you if you go off the lines like some other apps we've tried, so it's a great learning and practice tool.

    My daughter liked it at first, but now she finds it boring. Great way to practice sight words.
