Parents' Choice Award Winner! No in-app purchases - all 60 word families are immediately available to help your child learn to read and spell.
In this classic carnival-themed app from the hit PBS KIDS preschool series SUPER WHY, kids ages 4-6 will learn reading, word-building, and phonics skills as they play along with the Super Readers.
Learning and practicing word families is a key literacy skill, as it helps children to build onto their letter sound skills to reading full words more efficiently. Children learn to identify these key rhyming word families to make them more fluent readers.

Ratings and Reviews
I have sound!
My device side mute button was on and I had to turn it off to hear the sound in the app. Try that, and if that doesn't work then go to your system settings to look at your mute settings. This a "Super" great app!

Slow paced and boring
I wish this app was more of a faster paced game. The students even said "it takes too long between each word". And it does take far too long! This isn't an app malfunction issue, it's the design of the game. This is turn makes for a boring app with boring activities. The students played for a few minutes before asking to play something else. I'm totally bummed because I bought the bundle and I had high hopes! :-/
