Paid app has advertisements for other apps in it

I don’t usually write reviews for apps but I feel like I should for this one. This app has an advertisement in it that catches the eye of every single child who would ever use it and because of it the kid ends of clicking on the app advertisement instead of playing the game that we paid for him to play I think that this is a bad move and that they should reconsider how attentive attention grabbing that advertisement is so until they make a change so that my son can actually play the game rather than have his attention drawn to the bottom right corner every time he tries to do some thing. I am giving this a one star review and you bet that I’ll be watching because we are stuck inside because of coronavirus thanks for listening to my Ted talk

Letter sound error

My great-nephew loves playing on this app. However, as a retired teacher, I was dismayed that Elmo and the astronaut both said ahhh for the "a" sound. The letter "o" makes the ahhh sound while "a" makes the short a sound. I just bought the whole app for him, so I hope there are no more errors with letter sounds. Hopefully, you can change this problem with an upgrade.

Not so great.

For the videos on letter L it keeps saying the letter “A” like “A”, Leaf, “A” Lion

For the letter H it turns green when you haven’t even finished tracing it, actually for a lot of the letters it “accepts” the trace unfinished.

The orange arrow that gets kids from the videos to drawings to hide and seek gets stuck a lot and is impossible to move sometimes. I often have to try at least ten times to move it or just give up.

A very weak app for a paid app.
I wish there was more educational value and less “fun”. The only valuable part is the tracing and the three videos that correlate to the sound, the drawing is dumb because screen is too small to actually color AND it doesn’t teach anything, and the hide and seek is defective and doesn’t really help them learn anything.
