Description from the product page:

"A- Award winning app that effectively teaches young children to read and write.
B- Bubble-popping, alphabet-singing fun.
C- Cute animal friends introduce kids to the joy of learning.

An outstanding tool for education, ABCDay encourages kids to read, write, play, and sing their way through the alphabet. Straight forward navigation permits easy gameplay, and lively animations captivate children as they plunge into a vibrant undersea world. ABCDay is packed with four delightful sections, each with its own unique music and activities.

(1) Reading Time!
P is for Penguin. Identify letters of the alphabet by reading along to the names of loveable animals living in the aquatic wonderland.

(2) Writing Time!
Catch stars. With the assistance of a friendly turtle, trace a sequence of stars to practice drawing letters.

(3) Play Time!
Tickle a seashell until it releases new friends. Each animal that appears has a letter missing from its name. Test memory and spelling by bursting the bubble with the correct letter inside.

(4) Sing Along!
Sing aloud to the alphabet song. Pop letter-filled bubbles or simply watch them float as the song plays."

What's good?

* It is engaging and interactive and I love the beautiful illustrations!

* I was totally amazed when I saw my 3 year old boy tracing along the alphabet (uppercase & lowercase) in the  "Writing Time!" game by helping the turtle to follow (I said catch) the stars. Currently, I have not gone through the alphabets with my boy as I'm trying to build up his skills and practise in tracing activities. But based on this, I am very excited to see the potential of learning to write while still having fun!

* I also used the opportunity in the "Reading Time!" to teach my boy alphabets in a fun way, seeing the animals animated cutely and the bubbles popping!

* My boy is not at the reading level yet so we can't feedback on the "Play Time!" game at the moment but I will definitely revisit this app when the time comes (I always do that for all my products and apps!).
