About this game

Reading made easy!

Already enjoyed by over five million families, Learn to Read with Tommy Turtle is a delightful game that invites preschool-aged children to blend sounds into words, read and form simple words, identify spoken words and learn word families.

Its six sections include:

Magic Letter Bridge: kids learn to blend letter sounds into words by moving Tommy the Turtle across the letter bridge

Skateboards and Helmet: children practice reading as they are asked to fit Tommy's animal friends with skateboards and helmets
.
Turn the Blocks: kids make words in a way that's fun by turning real-looking blocks with letters on each side until the word is spelled out.

Word Ball: children learn to identify spoken words by helping Tommy bat the right ball (only available in full version)

Word Magic: kids learn about word families as they fill the corresponding pot with potion and watch magic happen (only available in full version)

Rocket Words: children get to practice word families as they assemble and launch a rocket into space (only available in full version)

If your children do not know the alphabet sounds yet, we recommend our Learn Letter Sounds with Carnival Kids app. And if your kids need to learn or practice the names of the letters, try our Learn ABC Letters with Captain Cat app.

Every section is designed to let children enjoy success time after time and receive positive reinforcement from the likable teacher, so they want to keep learning. Once your child is involved and happy, you can relax, with the assurance that he or she is having a great time - and learning.

Paid for the full version of this app and didn't get it. I contacted Intellijoy ( the app creator) via the email link on this page and they promply emailed back with a link to download the full version. The full app is a different download than the lite version, and well worth the $2.99 it costs. My grandson loves the app and I have a blast working through it with him. His reading skills have improved because of it. $ 2.99 gets you the full version and it's worth it.

Got this for my 8yo who's having trouble learning to read books. We read 3x Berenstain Bears easy readers and she was getting tired and stressed. Then i downloaded this app and she's lit up, excited and even said "This makes reading fun!". Only 2 downsides: the free activities are very minimal so 10 minutes later and she's already done them all. And the background music is a bit annoying but you can't turn the sound off or you'll miss the directions.

This app is good and was able to engage my 4 year old daughter to follow along. I then bought the full version and found out the graphics and word catalog are very limited. My kid didn't want to continue after few rounds coz it's the same thing. Appreciate if you can make this more dynamic and content-rich
