What does it promise?  The app promises to teach kids letter writing, letter names and sounds, and letter phonics. The game includes various visual representations for each letter, including ”A” for Playing Ant, “B” for Unicycle Bear, “C” for Acrobatics Camel and more, all the way through the alphabet.

Does it deliver?  The app is simple but engaging. Kids can tap and trace to practice their letters. The game also can be customized by the teacher, with various activities turned on or off.
