"For parents looking to give their children a fun, creative outlet that aids in early literacy by exposing and reinforcing connections to early sight word reading."
"Sentences are clearly written and the highlighting of featured words was one of the things that make learning feel easy and natural. The illustrations are blocky and colorful and the interactions children can have with characters before, during and after play give the app an immersive feeling as if they have entered a new world."

“Wow, so fun! I love how each learned word is revisited in stories and songs so that children are using them in new contexts all the time.”
