Ratings and Reviews

Nice ap


my 6 year old loves it and now my 4 year old is starting to 'read' the words too. I wish there were more words and I wish I could pick grade level.

There's better


Nothing special. Wish I could get my money back. Oh well....

Excellent program for kids!!!

Thank you, this is really good program for kids who are starting to learn to read. Great graphics and audio! Unfortunately, there are almost none of the good programs in the app store, that will actually break the process of reading down to elements and have a decent collection of words. Again, yours is the move in the right direction!!
