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.
Ready to solve the Grumpy Old Troll’s challenge? ¡Vámonos! Let’s go!

Ratings and Reviews
Since this is a paid app I'd prefer my 3 year old not seeing other apps to click on to buy at the beginning. This only takes up screen space when all she should be concerned with is the arrow that gets her to play the game-the one I purchased. There should also be a "left off where I just was" option.
Good for little tots
For some weird reason, I used to have this game. My school should get this for the pre k iPads
It's pretty good
It's pretty good for little toddlers but I think they should add more sounds to it but everything else is great
