    Disappointed

    So disappointed I spent $4 on this and it doesn't work properly. My 3 & 4 year old are extremely upset. First it took loading it several times to get it to even start. Then while you are trying to play it just shuts down in less than 1 min of playing. I restarted my Nook and also tried archiving it but neither helped. It looks like it will be a great game for the kids if it worked.

    Why may I ask

    I would love to review the game but it will not work on my nook hd. Needless to say 4 bucks later one upset parent and disappointed 4 year old. I believe there should be some type of test to make sure apps work... The start up screen was nice...

    It works fine...

    Purchased it just this afternoon and checked/played with each game and it works fine in my Nook HD. It won't however install in my Nook Color even after I've archived and powered-off. The games are easy enough to understand and follow. I think it will be a good learning tool for my toddler.

    This is the first application we found that really engaged my fi

    This is the first application we found that really engaged my five year old in writing and letter recognition. One of the things they really did right is the response for incorrect answers -- especially in the storybook game where the incorrect answer results in a silly picture. The pursuit of the silly pictures leads my son into even more word exploration, and he has a lot of fun doing it. The letter tracing game is effective and engaging, and there are just enough letter selections for word solving to be interesting but not frustrating. Our app opened just fine -- totally worth risking the few bucks (regarding others saying it won't open).

    Not working well

    This would be a great app if it worked. There is no way to turn down the distracting background music either

    Very much like the show

    This is for preschool kids. My 2 year old son (who knows all his letters) gets frustrated with it. I like that it is just like the show. I think it will be great when he's a little older. I personally think it is worth the money. High quality.

    Like others, app refuses to load

    This is really annoying. I am extremely displeased that my most expensive app purchase to date is also the most disappointing.

    Great game for PBS Kids fans

    My son loves this game and plays it as often as I'll let him get on my Nook. I like it because he is learning not just letters, but reading skills and writing methods. They are pretty basic, but his skill is, too.

    I very much recommend it for parents looking for a fun game for the kids that teaches phonics, reading and letter recognition. My son loves the stickers he wins when completing a section!

    Good but has glitches

    My three year old likes it, but the *play all* feature crashes on the nook color. The stickers section my child likes. Spelling, stories, rhyming, letter tracing all good. Letter tracing is not sensitive enough and frustrates my child. I agree with other posters that it will sometimes crash or hang suddenly. Fix the glitches and it would get five stars.

    Super cool!

    This is greatfor my two year old super why fan. I love all four carachters games but if you click on the playall book it shuts down the app for me on my hd+9 so that's annoying but he can just click on what he wants then play the next. He even likes playing with the stickers pages which is cute but turns into him hitting the screen too many times and too hard to see how many of one sticker he can put down. He is really learning his ,etters with this game and so I am very very happy.
