“We liked how the emphasis was on HOW you read to your child, not necessarily WHAT you read to your child. Although content is important, the approach and presentation of the content is key. …
The Retell, Record and Share feature gives children the opportunity to practice their storytelling skills--an often overlooked and essential activity after reading with a child. Retelling and summarizing a story builds important skills such as recall/memory, clarity of thought and delivery, sequencing, speaking skills, vocabulary, and analysis.” – Academics’ Choice Awards
"I read with my 2½ and 6 year old daughters, 'Goldilocks and the 3 Bears' and they absolutely loved it. When we were reading the story together, sparks were going off with tons of ideas on how I could implement this with my own students." -- Lauren Turk, Speech and Language Pathologist, New York
*WordWinks technique weaves onscreen questions and comments into the story to maximize vocabulary, comprehension and listening skills. The quality of words, not just the quantity, is crucial to language skills.
*Retell, Record & Share:
-Give your child a special gift: “retelling” the story is important practice for developing listening and speaking skills. It offers a chance to learn and utilize new vocabulary…put ideas in order so they make sense…identify important details…and build memory
-Help your child record his or her own version of the story and share it with Grandma and other loved ones, teachers and friends…right from the app!
*Pages cannot be turned until your child hears the entire narration, which promotes listening and comprehension skills
*Educate your child even when you’re not available with built-in narration and entertaining character voices by a master teacher

Following the letters of the alphabet, Alfred and the Dragon teaches children how to recognize letters and sounds, while capturing their imagination along the way.
