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!

Amazing educational phonics app
My daughter plays this app all the time. She loves the game where she can pop the balloons with letters on them as well as the one where she puts animals whose name begins with a particular letter into the train. I am a demanding parent when it comes to high-quality educational media for children and I am more than happy that I downloaded this app for my 4-year-old daughter. The app is very engaging and easy to use for her, and she has already learned almost all the letter sounds. If like me you have a child who is just beginning to read, Phonics Island is the way to go to get them started. Letter sounds are pronounced clearly and you have the option to choose either uppercase or lowercase letters. In sum, this is a fantastic app!
A really superb way to learn letter sounds and more!
My kids absolutely love this app and I can honestly say that Phonics Island Adventure is probably the best out there! My children are so inspired by the bright colors, user friendly interface and rewards this app presents. My kids think they are playing an awesome game while at the same time they are learning their letter sounds by associating it to their favorite animals and more. My kids love the newest update which includes new learning games such as tracing letters and identifying letters by sound! I highly recommend this app to any parents or teachers looking for a new and intellectual way to teach their children letter sounds!
All good on iPad, but small problem with Kurio tablet
My son really loves this app, but after tracing the letters so many times he doesn't want to do that anymore. I can turn that function off in the settings when using my iPad, but it does not show that function on the Kurio tablet. It just doesn't make sense because all the other options are there. I checked the developers web site and could not find a solution so I just emailed them today. I'll post if they provide a solution.
