Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (1 ):

LetterSchool does a great job of teaching letter writing with a three-step process: learn the starting points for each stroke, trace the letter, and write the letter without hints. While the animated features are cool and highly imaginative, they could be a little distracting for some early learners, who may not recognize that the lawnmower mowing the grass is actually writing the letter F. However, the app does give kids opportunities to see and write the letters without animations. LetterSchool also provides motivation for practice by creating two rounds that require kids to write all the letters multiple times.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
