Big Bird knows something special that he wants to share with your little learner: Words are all around you! And he¹s made a wonderful Word-o-Scope to help preschoolers look for words in the real world right on your mobile phone!

What's New in Version 1.2
New skip feature for intro so you can play the game right away!
I hope I didn't pay money for this
I have had this app several months. My 3 year old played it a few times for about 5 minutes each time. There is only one activity and it isn't that good. Never got any updates for more activities "coming soon". I can't recall if I paid anything for this. I hope not because it isn't worth the space on my ipad
Yay for skip!
This app has always been great, but it's even better now that my child can get to the game quicker.
Just bought this app last night and every time we go in it, keeps on crashing. Very disappointing!
