Is It Any Good?
This bare bones word-spelling game is straightforward and easy-to-use, but lacking some basic features. Round after round, kids can easily get lots of practice choosing the right letters to spell common words. The three levels of difficulty nicely accommodate kids with varying familiarity with spelling. And the handful of language options may appeal to multi-lingual families. Kids can also experiment with the different languages if they're interested in learning a new language, except that the words are never spoken out loud so kids won't be able hear what the words sound like. Even for kids playing in their native language, an audio track that pronounces the words once they're spelled is a pretty basic function in these kinds of apps that is conspicuously missing here. It would also be nice if when kids tap on a letter, they heard what sound that letter makes. Without additional support, this game does only part of the job of helping kids learn about letters and spelling words. In addition, the very basic graphics are cute enough but are incredibly simple. Overall, it feels like Juno Lamb Learn Letters was put together without much thought of how it might serve kids best. Despite the super simple user experience, there's not enough here to justify the purchase price.
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.
