Review:

Grab your beach towel and sand buckets! Join Turtle and his animal friends to complete a variety of entertaining and educational beach-themed phonics games. There are three main activities: players can go snorkeling with Turtle and help him find and identify upper- and lower-case letters, blow bubbles and listen to letter sounds with Koala, and practice letter names, sounds, and writing with Tiger. Additionally, children can explore the tidal pools to learn the names and fun facts about crabs, sea anemones, octopi and more. Each scene is interactive so that children can tap on the screen to play the radio, bounce a beach ball, or fly a kite. The main skills of focus are matching, letter names, letter sounds, letter formation, and vocabulary. The game also helps to hone fine motor control and hand-eye coordination.

Children will enjoy the characters, the game play and the catchy music; parents will appreciate the focus on beginning reading skills.
