Absolutely LOVE Footsteps2Brilliance!

I use this product with my niece. She loves the stories, songs and games and is having fun while learning! As an added bonus, she is learning some Spanish because she can easily switch between languages while learning/playing. I highly recommend this app!

This app is VERY discouraging to my 3 year old son. With the simple task of just tracing letters, it’s extremely sensitive and keeps making him start over with tracing because it’s assuming he’s tracing the letter incorrectly. He is getting frustrated because he’s trying his best and it just keeps making him start over and over. I don’t know if it is a glitch or what but we will no longer be using it. Stick to a white board and dry erase marker’s since they don’t actually write with fingers in school.


Definitely yes!

My children are stuck on there devices so why not make it educational. 8 & 3 they love it and before this awesome interactive app my 8 yr old didn’t like reading and now he’s an A honor happy reader and my 3 year old reads to me. ❤️❤️❤️
