We generally love anything PBS Kids, so we were psyched to hear that they have a new app — SUPER WHY Alpha Boost! App for iPhone and iPod touch ($1.99).
With the new app, available now on the App Store, children can play as their choice of character – Super Why, Princess Presto, Wonder Red or Alpha Pig, and “Alpha Boost!” to a party high above Storybrook Village. With over 100 party-themed words and five kinds of parties, “Alpha Boost!” provides hours of fun that reinforce letter recognition and letter sounds. The SUPER WHY Alpha Boost! App is available for $2.99 from the App Store on iPhone or iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore. More info can be found here.
So what did my 6 year old, Ben, think? “It’s great! The higher you go, the more levels you get. I learned how to read new words!” He was able to easily play it on my iPod touch and it kept his attention. Plus, he loves cats and was thrilled to see them in the game (among loads of other animals). We pronounce it a winner!
