Before babies are able to form complete words, they are perfectly capable of signing to express their needs. This app teaches parents and kids 145 different signs. There are also quizzes and tests to take to see how you are progressing.

Dora Saves the Crystal Kingdom

Most kids are familiar with Dora the Explorer and enjoy going on adventures with her. With this app kids can help Dora save the Crystal Kingdom. The phone can be tilted from side to side in order to steer Dora in the correct direction along the rainbow slide. Kids can also count along with Dora to make sure all the hidden crystals have been found. There is also a built-in coloring book!

Flyloop: Butterfly Looping Fun

Jelly Doodle

This app is for a game where kids can create their very own desserts. There are a variety of choices in gelatin to choose from and other ingredients can be added to the gelatin; pretzels, bananas, apples, or any of the other 60 food choices. The dessert is molded into a shape after all the ingredients are mixed together. Once the dessert is taken out of the mold, it can bounce around the screen for a while. Kids get a kick out of this app!

iWriteWords

Kids can learn their ABCs with this app. Even a child of preschool age can use the drag-and-draw feature to play a game that teachers him to write each letter of the alphabet. Once the letter is traced successfully, it becomes animated and kids find this to be very entertaining! When kids have the hang of making each letter, then they can work on forming complete words.

The happy little animated bumblebee seen in this appt teaches kids to read and makes reading fun. As your child touches the word on the screen, the bumblebee says the word. In fact, before kids are able to read all on their own, they have the option to get the bee to narrate the entire story to them.
