ALPHABYTES is a multi-faceted and multi-level app that teaches kids their alphabet, printing, and some spelling while they have fun. There is a lot to this app, and it offers hours of play for preschool and early elementary kids. The interactive images in the Alphabet section will keep the kids playing. There, certain letters allow even more interaction and learning. N teaches kids the numbers 1 through 10. P allows kids to draw with a pencil. Some of the letters also make use of tilting the device. The interface is attractive and very intuitive. Kids will be able to use the app with very little direction.

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.
