Great program! One problem, though; we keep having an issue with the sound. Sometimes, it will play just the music but not the words and we have to close the app and restart to get it to work properly. Other than that, my 9 year old is loving it. She's got adhd and disgraphia, and it's helping her to learn to read more easily. 🥰 Thank you so much for giving her something to be proud of!

It looks like all of the feedback from previous reviews has fixed those issues. I was able to create an account and log in with no problem. The app allows me to choose the grade level for my child too. The graphics and crisp and the audio is full of humor. This will help keep kids engaged.

I downloaded this today and sat me a profile to try it before showing it to the kids! Don't waste your time the sound doesn't work I tried it a few times. Sad because it has a good concept
