Is your child curious about letters? Curious George certainly is, and he needs your child’s help on this alphabet adventure. This simple app creates the perfect environment for your child to develop foundational reading and writing skills, with plenty of fun!
Children enter into Curious George’s colorful world, where letters have been broken apart from their partners and are hiding behind bushes, fire trucks, toy chests, and more! Children must find each letter and then trace it with the help of the Man with the Yellow Hat.
Once the letters are traced, children match lowercase and uppercase letters into pairs to earn their achievement badge! Earning letter badges builds skills and confidence. And playing with Curious George is your child’s first step towards writing his or her own name!
Curious About Letters also allows your child to record and play back each letter sound! This is a fun way to learn the A-B-C’s and it creates an audible reinforcement of what your child has learned.
