Ratings and Reviews
Really great app
My kids are 6, 4, and 2 so being able to customize different profiles for each of them is really great. It's easy to navigate, which I always love in a kid app. One of the things I like most about this app is the section that they need to place the right letter to make the word, even when the wrong letter is placed in the spot the narrator of the game sound out the all of the letters so my kids can hear the sounds that are in the word, example they want them to place the letter u to make the word cup, c and p are already in place, the letters u, t, and g are available to place. If my child places the g the narrator then sounds out c-g-p and the monkey shakes his head and then they get to place another letter, this is really great for young children, they get to solve the problem and see why cgp doesn't make a word that anybody understands. There aren't any ads for them to touch and navigate out of the game they are in. I recommend this app for all young children, it's really a great app.
Best reading app, but needs update
1. My daughter is learning to read from this app. It is OUTSTANDING. Well designed, tracks her progress, fun. So much fun the little brother wants to watch, which greatly increases its value in her eyes.
2. It needs an update to allow a backup of progress per child. This is important because a) it can currently only be played on one ipad, and b) it crashed the other day and lost all her progress. She didn't care about getting the easy words again, but she was unspeakably upset when it gave her a reward for her terrarium and it turned out all the previous rewards had gone and her terrarium was empty. It was devastating.
THIS is what we were looking for!
There are a bunch of apps out there that are 'educational' but they don't really follow education theory. THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM. This is pre-reading and beginning reading the way you'd get it in elementary school. The games are short and varied, the concepts are the same ones you get in school -- from rhyming to identifying vowel sounds, to letter identification of both capital and lower-case letters. Builds sounding-out skills as well as site word skills in a fun, encouraging and VARIED way. Great to play WITH your child, too...keeps parents from getting bored. This is a winner, we recommend this one very much.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
