This is a wonderful app for my son! I feel like there are too many apps (and too many teachers in school) that pretty much try and get children to memorize what words look like. That is too hard for my son. With this app, it focuses on sounding words out and it is helping a LOT! I am very glad that I purchased this app because he is reading better. This keeps him engaged in his learning while, with other apps and with his teachers, he doesn't get frustrated. He just keeps on playing the games on this app! I highly recommend.
