The second in the Nickelodeon Literacy Suite, Dora ABCs Vol 2: Rhyming focuses on your child’s emerging literacy skills. By matching rhyming words and more with Dora and Boots in this educational application, your child will become aware of individual sounds (phonemes) in words and how they are sequenced and changed to make new words. The ability to hear, discriminate and manipulate phonemes is highly associated with reading readiness in early childhood and considered a critical skill for the development of reading skills.
In this game, Dora and Boots want to go over the Troll Bridge, but the Grumpy Old Troll challenges them with a riddle: “To get past the bridge of the Grumpy Old Troll, find the tokens to pay my toll.” The player must listen and match rhyming pairs to collect tokens, and then, use a slingshot to get those tokens in the Troll’s moving basket. Only then will they be able to go over the Troll Bridge.
And the adventure continues! After finding the rhyming pairs, your child will progress to hearing initial word sounds, ending word sounds, and inside sounds. As your child selects a matching token, the word pairs are reinforced. Supportive directions and sound effects help guide your child in learning all about word sounds.
The educational activity of hearing matching word sounds and the challenge of getting tokens in a moving basket come together to keep kids entertained while building important early reading skills.

Ratings and Reviews
A great app for teaching kids rhyming
this is a fantastic app for teaching kids about rhyming and how to rhyme. My kids also enjoyed the tossing of the tokens into the pot and the interaction with the toll booth troll. fun and educational at the same time. I highly recommend this app.
6 years and up
I got this app for my 5 year old daughter who recently learned her abc. This app is too difficult for her. It has only one level of complexity. The game provides a word and the child has to select the word that rhymes from 5 options. By the time my daughter reaches the last option she's forgotten the first. It would have been better if it started with 2 options and additional options could be added as the game progressed. The selected words are also difficult and not appropriate for a beginner.
My 4 year old sister loves it! She is actually learning a lot from this game.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
