Developed by popular early childhood educator, Barbara Milne, ABCSOUNDS is a wonderful way to introduce your young child to the phonetic sounds used in the English language. This app was created from Barbara Milne’s famous “Apple apple Aaa” song found on her SOUNDS LIKE LEARNING CD.

* Barbara’s music is unique because it is based on a slow and relaxing beat, simple background and repetition that young children need and love.
* Have been used in homes for over 30 years and they really work!
* Millions have watched and learned the English letter sounds from her YouTube videos, and this wonderful learning tool is now available in app form!
* All of the music and vocals on this app are performed by Barbara Milne. It is her soothing and beautiful tone that has made her music so popular with children.

* ABCSOUNDS is a multi-sensory learning tool. It combines audio, voice and written words.
* Your child will learn to recognize the word by the sounds they hear in this app.
* The pictures look more like the actual letter and have a “Hidden Letter” inside the picture. This “mnemonic” device makes it easier for children to remember the shape of the letter AND the sound as a unit.
* This app is created for children starting at about 1 year old and can go all the way up to adults who want to learn the English language.
* This app can also be used in the classroom.

- Start a New Learning Session or Resume an old one.
- Flip between alphabets or touch the next and previous arrow button to go back and forth.
- Children can sing and “act out” the letters with their hands, which engages them actively and increases retention. For example: Bb = Rocking a baby in your arms, Dd = Pretending to be a T-Rex dinosaur with 2 claws on each hand, Ff = Making a flower open from a closed hand (a bud) to open fingers (an open flower with petals).

Love the app, bad placement of upgrade button

My son loves this - they use the song in daycare all the time so it's great to be able to sing it with him at home, too. The one downside is that the 'buy pro' button is so close to the 'next' button my son hits it by accident if he doesn't wait until the end of the letter (when the arrow moves to the center of the screen). He can't purchase anything, but it take him out of the app which frustrates him.

Upgrade button makes this unusable for toddler.

I have upgraded, but these are two different games. The free version is perfect for my 18 month old. But, he can't play the game because that upgrade button takes him out every 10 seconds.
The other game is better for my three year old. So I want both.
Can I give you $3 to take that button off of this version???

One of our favorite apps

My granddaughter and I sing to this app every night. At 2 1/2, she can now sing all of her letter sounds, even without the app. So much more fun than the traditional ABC song.
