"Explore Lexi’s World, an enchanting app that provides a gentle introduction to letters, words, animals and actions. The playful landscape allows young children and caregivers ample opportunities for rich interaction with each other. Surprises abound as children bring words to life and reveal discoveries about cause and effect." — http://www.ala.org/alsc/welcome-excellence-early-learning-digital-media-award-home-page

"For a young child, cracking the reading code can be hard work. This app bridges the distance between letters and meaning by turning letters into living building blocks. As a child types, she builds items that appear on the screen." — http://www.bolognachildrensbookfair.com/en/bologna-childrens-book-fair-awards/bolognaragazzi-digital-award/2019-winners/2019-mentions/7174.html

In Lexi's World, words are magic spells that bring their meanings to life.

Lexi lives on a tiny planet. Using a special keyboard that only allows words that exist to be entered, children can add animals and food to the world. Type "bunny" and a small bunny appears. Type "carrot" so Lexi can feed the bunny.

This is a gentle world inspired by Fred Rogers, early Sesame Street and the wonderful books by Ezra Jack Keats. The app encourages exploration through a simple world building mechanism and does not have any reward loops. You can't collect stars to buy a new outfit for Lexi. You can make stars though! First make it dark using the special code: "night," then type "star." You can make as many stars as you want!

Lexi's World was made with love, tested with kids who proved its value and suggested many of the interactions - of course "Lexi should be able to ride the horse." Now she can.
