WALLYKAZAM! LETTER AND WORD ADVENTURE's fun characters will delight preschoolers, and its 3-D graphics are simply amazing. But it's the learning content that really makes it magical. The four games each focus on an aspect of learning to read in a way that is fun for kids while reinforcing pre-reading skills. The use of lowercase letters is a nice touch since the majority of text that kids encounter while reading is in lowercase form. Each activity emphasizes phonics, with kids hearing both the letter's name and its phonetic sound. The tower game will challenge kids, and the amount of content within that one mini-game is impressive by itself. Kids will work with rhyming words, finding words that begin with the same letter sound, or finding words that have the same starting blend. The reward activity is really innovative and manages to still incorporate learning. Kids will learn new words (like fluorescent) when they unlock the word and then drag it into place to change Borgelorp. It's beautiful, fun, and educational.

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.
