Wee Sing & Learn ABC introduces the English alphabet via the childhood classic "ABC song. Select from Auto Play, Read to Me or Read to Myself, options to open an ABC book with 26 "pages" of animals playing instruments and words that begin with the chosen letter. Frieda the Frog plays the flute and on her page we see a flower, a fish and a football. Players can choose ABC Song (letters only), Explore ABC (tap and hear the letter spoken), Explore Animals, Play Along. Explore Animals has a scroll bar at the bottom of the screen with all the animals from the song in sequence, to be tapped to enlarge. When the animal is full screen, the options are to hear the audio of the instrument the animal is playing, hear the sound the animal makes or hearing the appropriate letter spoken. Although this is basically one song repeated in several ways, the variations will keep early learners listening and repeating.
