“This is the perfect app for a child to learn how to write their letters and later for spelling. I like the option of having an outline as well as being able to write the letter yourself.”

“As a Kindergarten teacher I am always on the hunt for great new app. I love that this app says the name of the letter and the sound as Ollie shows you how to write the letter. I also appreciate that the app doesn’t allow students to form a letter incorrectly. Thank you! I will be recommending this app to co-workers and families.”

“What really impressed me is how much fun my niece is having while learning! It’s like a game for her thanks!!”

“This app is perfect for any kid trying to learn letters.”

“This app is definitely a must have for those who have kids! The cute design’s entertaining!”

“My daughter loves the little owl- woo hoo!!”

“This app is perfect for introducing your child to letters, sounds, and letter formation. My daughter is 3.5 and loves it! Buying the full version gives you access to all the letters and sight words. Totally worth $2.99 to me!”
