Bottom Line: Cursive writing isn't always taught in school anymore so parents who are looking for something to help teach this once staple in writing will have a good find in this app. It's made for kids three to seven to learn with attractive demonstrations and practice writing and can keep track of up to three kids as they master upper-case, lower-case and numbers from a choice of two popular writing styles.
Bottom line: Talking ABC has been updated recently, and it's still one of my favorite ABC apps of all time with awesome claymation graphics and adorable characters. It's still a Top Pick in my book!
They've also recently released the French and German versions of this app. The French version is free for a limited time, don't miss out on the opportunity to expose your child to another language!
