This app is very fun to play with and will impart reading lessons to your child, without him or her even realizing it. To keep a child's interest and willingness to learn high, the app automatically switches to a different learning activity every 5 right answers. There are 9 different word and letter activities, which teach the sounds of the letters, including short and long vowels. It goes into the consonant-vowel-consonant pattern as well, allowing your child to practice and hone this in.
The animation in the app is visually stunning and captivating, as well as fast paced and a joy to play with. The child receives awards at every level, with an animal that he or she can put in a zoo and play with. This gives the child a reason to keep playing and get correct answers. I particularly like the reporting tool, which allows you to follow your child's learning progress.
Duck Duck Moose has made many great apps for young kids and this is just another great one!
