It is a great app for my son, because even though he knows his alphabet and the phonetic sounds, he has a hard time with his handwriting being sloppy. So, the tracing aspect of the app allows him to practice with positive reinforcement. He loved getting the fireflies when he did a good job and it persuaded him to take his time rather than rushing through like he normally does. The Montessori way of teaching is PERFECT for him and Kids Academy does a great job of incorporating everything into a fun experience for kids. A+ Kids Academy!
