Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Encourage your preschooler to build reading and phonics skills with the Word Walk series of interactive e-book apps for iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. The Word Walk series was created by a mom who wanted to create quality apps to help teach her own preschooler to read.
Toddler-tested, parent-approved – this app also promotes reading in young children with picture-word association. When your child touches our illustrations, descriptive words appear and are spoken.
Learning vowel sounds and sight words are important steps to early reading. Join our main character, Jake, as he takes his daily walk and encounters new friends and experiences that repeat the “short o” vowel sound. Meet a happy frog in the bog, and more. This book also incorporates many frequently-used sight words to help kids gain confidence reading.
