Bottom Line: Ready to Read focuses on helping children form letter shapes and identify letter sounds to build early reading skills. Through an easy-to-use layout, children can choose to practice writing letters and beginner words or practice identifying letter sounds. This would be a good app for a child learning what sounds the different letters make and begining to build words based on letter sounds.
Bottom Line: Tribal Nova uses iOS technology to modernize one of Margaret and H.A. Rey's classic Curious George tales with reading levels, personalization and play theater based on the dialogic reading method for kids five and under. Although this is a fun activity for kids and their caregivers, adults must take an active role in this app for children to get the full benefits.
