"Bob Books Reading Magic shows kids how to make the connection between letters and sounds, sound out simple words and spell the words they’ve read. The game includes twelve scenes for a total of 32 words. Four game levels provide increasing challenges to children as they play."Here's a screenshot:
It wasn't obvious to our three year old tester that you can select a level of difficulty, rather than letting the game progress and get increasingly more difficult (we had written it off as a great game but too simple for the Bibliophile until I took a look at it myself tonight). You can actually choose among four difficulty levels from the options menu. By the 4th level, users spell a word by using letters floating on the page; letters not needed in the word are included, and there is no greyed out word where the answer belongs. This level is much better suited for the Bibliophile at the moment.
Overall, for $1.99, it's a fantastic tool for a pre- or early reader -- and a fun way to occupy your toddler during a doctor's visit.
Bob Books Reading Magic is available in the iTunes App Store (here). An iPad version is available as well.
