What it is:An interactive alphabet book + a simple tracing activity.

What you do with it: navigate through the alphabet, listen to a description of an animal or creature (e.g. 'Don the dino rocks a striped scarf in all weather') tap the animal to reveal the particular letter, then try to find additional interactions in the scene (simple animations and sounds).

After you complete all the letters, choose one letter to trace it with your finger.

What we liked: the concept. Funny illustrations, animations and interactions. Ease of use. No distracting elements. Sounds and sound backgrounds.

What we didn't like: the names of the letters are not read out. Some of the descriptions can be too abstract for young kids (e.g. 'Finnegan the fox writes flippant film critiques'). Only uppercase letters in the tracing activity. Only linear navigation from A to Z (no access to individual letters).
