What It Is
Think Smart Games partnered with children's education and entertainment leaders Christopher Cerf and Jane Aaron to create Animal Alphabet Singers, an app designed to make learning the ABCs fun for emergent readers. The app offers a variety of fundamental letter recognition exercises and activities. In Meet the Letters, a colorful letter keypad introduces each letter and an animal that starts with that letter. In Meet the Animals, kids choose a letter and the animal that begins with that letter appears and talks to the child. Tap on any animal to see an animated movie revealing fun facts about the animal. The Guess the Animals and Letters activity invites kids to select the correct first letter of the featured animal name. And The Animal Alphabet Singers activity invites kids to tap an animal or letter to hear the appropriate animal character sing a response. You can also press the music button to hear the animals sing the ABCs.
Why It’s Fun
This app is a cute and funny way to help beginning readers explore the alphabet. Kids will like engaging with the 26 animals through each of the four app activities. We like that the app includes both uppercase and lowercase letters to help children recognize the differences between the letter forms.

Animal Alphabet Singers is for ages 2–6. This app does not contain any ads for other apps.
