Product Description

The first in the Nickelodeon Literacy Suite, Dora ABCs Vol 1: Letters & Letter Sounds focuses on your child’s emerging literacy skills. In this application, your child will learn the Alphabetic Principle: to recognize letters, write letters and associate letters with sounds. Once children are able to hear and discern sounds (phonemes), they are ready to associate those sounds with letters. That means kids learn their ABC’s with Dora and Boots in this exciting educational game! What’s that Dora and Boots see up in the sky? It’s Tico in his Nutty Plane, writing letters and drawing pictures. But he needs you to help him with his ABC’s! Pick up all the nuts he needs to power the plane by tracing the letters. After that, help Tico make a picture in the sky. What’s that picture that begins with the letter A? An Apple! It’s such an adventure to explore, learn and read with Dora. As your child traces the letters, Dora reinforces the sound of each of the letters. Supportive directions and sound effects help guide your child in learning their letters. A new game, Letter and Picture Match, reinforces initial letter sounds by grouping pictures that start with the same sound. A letter select screen allows your child to play any game on any letter they choose. With the educational activity of tracing letters, the interactive tilting action, and the picture guessing, Dora ABCs Vol 1: Letters & Letter Sounds will keep kids entertained, all while learning their ABC’s! Ready for some high-flying letter learning? ¡Vámonos! Let’s go! Dora ABCs Vol 1: Letters & Letter Sounds includes: •Easy to use tutorials lead by Dora •Tracing Uppercase and Lowercase Letters of the alphabet •Hearing and reinforcement of letters sounds •A tap and drag game to put letters in the correct holes. •78 pictures that reinforce letters sounds and initial letters •A new game, Letter and Picture Match, reinforces initial letter sounds by grouping pictures that start with the same sound. •A letter select screen that allows you to choose any letter to play •Curriculum developed and reviewed by preschool education expert •Player profiles now allow more than one child to play and save their progress •Parent Reporting which shows you how your child is progressing in the app.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!!! February 19, 2013

This app is GREAT! My 3 yr old son goes around drawing his letters on anything he can with his finger. This has to be one of the better educational apps that I have come across. He doesn't sit still for very long, and he will play this "game" for quite a while. He is so proud of himself when he traces his letters.

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter loved it January 22, 2013

I put this on my Kindle for my 3 year old to learn to write her letters. It was so user friendly she understood right away how to trace the letters. She really liked the letter match game since it let her know when it wasn't right and which one's to try. A super fun game for kids and parents!

My 3 year old asked for this game and I'm so glad we spent the money! It's very educational and helps her learn her letters and sounds. Will purchase the 2nd edition when we've mastered this one...really happy with this purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun game for the littler learners April 13, 2013
By Beth
Verified Purchase
My 3 year old loves Dora so this game has been very enjoyable for him. It is a fun alternative to the pre-k papers he usually does during home schooling. While I don't advocate excessive screen time I appreciate games like this that are complimentary to what my children are learning because it feels like they are getting a special treat by playing a game and I don't feel like they are just wasting time.

1.0 out of 5 stars It does not work February 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
I downloaded this app for my two and half year old twins. They were unable to make it work. I thought it was there issue being only two, so my husband and I both tried it. It locks up every few minutes and we have to restart my kindle fire. I purchased the app today and was going to return it, but that is not an option, so I least wanted to share that it did not work on the kindle fire to prevent other users from having this problem. My kids love Dora and were very disappointed.
