KIRKUS REVIEW

This very basic ABC book features attractive art but lacks enhancements that take advantage of the tablet technology.

Each screen in this ABC book features one letter, a picture of an animal and an object, and a word label. Touching the image causes the label to toggle back and forth between animal and object. A hippo strums a harp, an octopus juggles oranges, a turtle talks on a telephone and so on. There are no animations, sound effects or music. A narrator voices the letter and both words on the page. The design is clean and harmonious, and the illustrations feature whimsical, agreeable critters set on a variety of background textures, patterns and colors. A pop-up menu on the bottom of the screen offers an easy way to navigate to any letter of the alphabet. There is a quiz section where kids can practice sight-word recognition by choosing the correct word that matches the illustration. But this really doesn’t do much that a good alphabet book doesn’t do as well or far better.

Not really very wonderful after all. (iPad alphabet app. 2-6)
