Hello everyone! Are you up to an adventure? I am Abby the Monkey, the friend you know from a highly-successful application series by 22learn, and I have prepared one for you! If you want to EXPLORE a strange animal island and LEARN PHONETIC LETTER SOUNDS, you shouldn’t wait a minute, and come with me!!!
But first let me tell you a story….
Once upon a time, there was an island, an island of indescribable beauty and magnificence. There found a shelter the animals small and large, slimy and furry, savage and tame—all protected from evil hunters and curious eyes, supplied with food from the bountiful earth. Each year, a special event was held, when one, and only one, person from the whole humankind was selected and transported to the island (blinded, to preserve the island’s secrecy) to appreciate its beauty and spread the word about it, so that the island would never be forgotten.
The legend has it, that deep inside the rocky hill on the island, a treasure is kept. Yet, no one knows its secret anymore because the last humankind representative had enraged the animals on the island, and since then, the animals decided never to invite anyone again, and the island got lost in time and space.
All that remains from our knowledge is that through the whole island, a very special train goes. The train has a mind of its own and likes it when the passengers’ names start from certain sounds! It is said, that if someone was ever capable to fulfill all the train’s wishes, the train would transport the lucky being deep inside the rocks and reveal the island’s precious treasure!
But, you are asking, what does all this have to do with me, monkey Abby? Well, imagine what happened to me just recently! I was flying around with my plane when, out of the blue, the storm hit and my plane got lost!
And now, I am on this weird island that looks exactly like the legendary Phonics Island I told you about! Wohoo, how exciting! But I need someone to help me with all the strange tasks the train asks me to do! Do you want to be the one who will help me, and discover the island’s treasure together with me?
Thank you for your purchase!

Ratings and Reviews
I would re-record the phonics before allowing any more downloads of this app
I deleted it and will not try it again until the phonic letter sounds are recorded to better portray the ACTUAL sounds of the letters. This is not s good learning app! This is a bad learning app for teaching the sounds of the letters to English speaking children.
Another amazing learning app for children!
22Learn has really done an outstanding job with this amazing learning app featuring the famous Abby the Monkey that my kids have come to love! They loved all the games from tracing letters, to letter matching and much more. My kids absolutely loved all the animals which really kept their interest in all the activities. The graphics are outstanding and overall is very child user friendly. The sounds are crystal clear and my kids loved being recognized for their correct answers. I highly recommend this app to everyone that has or teaches children!
Very effective intro to phonics!!!
Very effective intro to phonics
I got this app for my 4-year-old daughter to learn letter sounds, and this app made her learn just that! The design of the app is quite delightful and child-friendly. Children who like animals will especially enjoy this app as phonemic awareness is developed through initial sounds in the names for animals. There is a variety of games to keep children interested and also reinforce their learning. My daughter loves to pop balloons with the letters called. She got so much better at quickly sounding out sounds since she got this app. Very effective for learning!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
