    A fun app for children to learn how to read in English

    • Ideal for children who are starting to read
    • Interactive and fun
    • Limited features unless you upgrade to pro

    "Read and play at the same time"


    Modern families are in luck. Nowadays there are apps of all shapes and sizes. There are some great options for entertaining the kids, but also for making sure that they learn. Many apps go for the entertainment side of things, but there are some excellent teaching tools as well that can help us shape the abilities of our children. Kids Learn to Read is one of those apps. It's dedicated to helping kids learn to read their first sentences in English.


    The game has a nice feel to it and may be useful for those little ones that are at the age of reading their first words. There are various challenges and levels through which the child must progress by spelling out and reading words with varying levels of difficulty. At the end of each game, the player will receive a prize with which they can make puzzles. There are various mini games along the way that will help to hold the child's attention and have fun while learning.


    The version we downloaded from Google Play was a trial version, and so if you want access to features without limits, you'll have to pay for the pro version.

    Reading made easy!

    Already enjoyed by over five million families, Learn to Read with Tommy Turtle is a delightful game that invites preschool-aged children to blend sounds into words, read and form simple words, identify spoken words and learn word families.

    Its six sections include:

    Magic Letter Bridge: kids learn to blend letter sounds into words by moving Tommy the Turtle across the letter bridge

    Skateboards and Helmet: children practice reading as they are asked to fit Tommy's animal friends with skateboards and helmets
    Turn the Blocks: kids make words in a way that's fun by turning real-looking blocks with letters on each side until the word is spelled out.

    Word Ball: children learn to identify spoken words by helping Tommy bat the right ball (only available in full version)

    Word Magic: kids learn about word families as they fill the corresponding pot with potion and watch magic happen (only available in full version)

    Rocket Words: children get to practice word families as they assemble and launch a rocket into space (only available in full version)

    If your children do not know the alphabet sounds yet, we recommend our Learn Letter Sounds with Carnival Kids app. And if your kids need to learn or practice the names of the letters, try our Learn ABC Letters with Captain Cat app.

    Every section is designed to let children enjoy success time after time and receive positive reinforcement from the likable teacher, so they want to keep learning. Once your child is involved and happy, you can relax, with the assurance that he or she is having a great time - and learning.
