The popular site, Starfall, has taken their ABCs section from their site and compacted it into a mobile app for you to tote around on the go. Your child can see, hear, and interact with letters and sounds in the many activities and games offered within the app through positive reinforcement. The Starfall website is used in many schools and by many parents to give their young learners an early start to reading.
