This app can be used alone or alongside an especially made wooden alphabet (only for iPad). Apps come free with the purchase of the wooden alphabet, including Vocabubble and Alphamonster. The letters are priced at £49.00, so are fairly expensive. The app involves exploring different letters, which children can press to reveal different words, all starting with the letter they have chosen. This helps children build words and vocabulary throughout the app, with some unusual words included to help build children's vocabulary, for example artichoke. These words come with beautifully illustrated drawings. Great opportunities for parents and children to work together and for parents to help children understand some of the more complex words. Available in five languages.
