Children ages 3-6 love Rhyme a Zoo!
---maybe because kids are blissfully unaware they’re simultaneously developing crucial literacy skills while listening to 120 beloved classic rhymes, answering fun questions, and creating their own private zoo! Each rhyme’s four picture-cued questions foster letter-sound recognition and reading comprehension. Kids earn coins to purchase exotic animals from across the globe, including dinosaurs, learn three child-friendly facts about each animal, hear weird sounds each animal makes, and can express their personal identity with a customizable zookeeper.
Your child will LOVE getting smarter!
First of all great entertainment for kids, Rhyme a Zoo is the latest development in a program which research data document has been incredibly successful. Created with a federally funded Georgia Improving Teacher Quality grant, the game builds on a DVD and website (hearatale.com) which raised mean vocabulary scores for 459 at-risk Title I kindergarten students from the 27th to the 47th percentile. Three years later on their statewide 3rd grade reading exams these children scored in the highest range 35% more often than their peers, and in the lowest range less than half as often (7.6% vs. 16.13%).
Despite the remarkable educational rewards, your child will love Rhyme a Zoo! We unconditionally guarantee it!
This version of Rhyme a Zoo adds support for the latest iOS devices.

Builds reading skills
My four-year old very quickly figured out that she could read the letters to answer questions and collect coins more quickly. She enjoys hearing the rhymes and animal facts read to her, and the game holds her attention. She's learning to sound out words without even realizing she's learning.
