Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Four (4) fun, educational, interactive games in one:
1) Phonics Cards (52 cards, including upper and lowercase letters)
2) Guessing Game (5 cards per letter, totaling 130 activities)
3) Trace & Learn (52 cards, including upper and lowercase letters)
4) Matching & Memory (unlimited number of games)
Awarded 4.5 stars and “Editor’s Choice” by BestAppsforKids and “Top Pick” by FunEducationalApps, Phonics Fun & Games introduces preschoolers to the fun of learning while enhancing essential skills for kindergarten success. Engaging audio/visual effects help develop upper and lower case letter-sound recognition, beginning sounds and vocabulary, proper letter formation, preliminary handwriting skills, memory practice, visual discrimination and fine motor skills. The easy-to-use game interface is so simple that children can play all four games independently without parental help!
In the Phonics Cards game, preschoolers befriend 26 fun and culturally diverse characters from the world of Scholarville, and together they embark on an adventure in learning the fundamentals of alphabet letter sounds, and upper- and lowercase letters. These critical skills are built upon and the excitement tripled in the additional three games. The high repetition of fundamental concepts throughout all the games is critical to children’s comprehension of the material, and it is particularly beneficial for children with learning disabilities or ESL (English as Second Language) learners.

Phonics fun and games
Your app is just fabulous. My grandkids Diana (3) and Elsa (4) just love it! Diana's baby-sitter, Missy, loves the app even more - she uses it as a child management tool! It has helped me keep my granddaughters engaged in constructive activity at restaurants and family get-togethers, minimizing their boredom and diverting them from mischief to learning. We are waiting for the Pierrot's R&D department to come up with more of these fun and educational apps.
Please fix in update
As an elementary school teacher of 13 years and a daddy of 3 toddlers, I can say that the app is fairly well put together. The rating is due to some minor glitches that detract from the overall package - especially given the price. Specifically, the last clue in the guessing game gets cut off for MANY of the items. I am hoping this gets fixed because it makes a quarter of the app less than desirable.
I've been an elementary school Teacher and elementary school Principal but now work at the District level. My 4 and a half year old LOVES this app. My 18 month old even like listening to the phonics cards. Great learning tool!
