+ Nimble Minds' best seller Bud's First Words - Reading Games' is now available in Japanese. A beautifully illustrated word learning and reading game, loved by kids, parents and teachers all over the world.
Join Bud on a journey through his house, school, city and around as he and his friends go from place to place to learn and review everyday sight words used in Japanese for naming things. There is a long list of vocabulary for the children to learn and practice.
In Bud's First Words - Reading Games, toddlers and preschool kids will start learning by listening and reading nouns, the names of things found around them in everyday places like bedroom, bathroom, classroom, playground, park, etc. Then in Play mode children will read questions and they will be asked to identify the same objects and recognize their words to reinforce their learning. In no time you will see kids spotting and naming things around the house and increasing their vocabulary every time they play.
