We never tire of seeing good education apps for iOS, and Animal Alphabet HD, by Fish The Mouse Media, is certainly no exception. This iPad app features beautiful hand-drawn paintings and an intuitive learning system to teach your child the alphabet. If you’re a parent looking to enliven your child’s learning experience with modern technology, Animal Alphabet HD is a great place to start.
The primary function of Animal Alphabet HD is extremely simple: To teach your child the alphabet using animals whose names begin with the letter in question. For instance, talking about the letter P produces an illustration of a porcupine, all while the narrator talks (very) alliteratively with that letter to illustrate its sound. Your child can either pick a letter from a large spread of the whole alphabet, or skip from one to the other by pressing two lady bugs that rest along the bottom right and bottom left.
Each animal offered is gorgeously hand drawn by artist Norm Magnusson, and the paintings are fully interactive. Your child will have a blast poking and prodding the animals to uncover new animations and engaging elements, of which there seem to be an infinite number.
