Fun phonics

A really fun way for children to reinforce their phonics without really realising they're learning.

When first played, the app works on letter sounds at the beginning of a word. Some time later, and without warning, it switches to letter sounds in the middle of a word, which is a little more difficult. And there's no way to reset without deleting and re-downloading the app. Hence 4 stars. I'd give the app 5 stars if there was a way to control the level your child needed to play at or if there was an easier way to reset it. I still highly recommend it though.
