Spelling Hero Game by TapToLearn
Spelling Hero Game by TapToLearn
1.0 out of 5 stars Confusing age target, 2 Feb 2014
I thought a superhero spelling game would be good for my 6 year old but it's too hard. It says it's for all ages which means level 1 has simple words like bell but also the word liable. How many little kids could understand the description let alone work out how to spell it from all the letters available in the time limit? I struggled to work out that the hint "multitude" meant school. Personally I think a superhero theme interests younger children but many of the words are suitable for teenagers (liable and civics for example). I shall be deleting this and pretend it never existed!

5.0 out of 5 stars A bit good, 1 April 2012
I bought this book for my three year old last summer as a distraction gift to read on our long journey to our holiday. He liked it straight away as the illustrations are really expressive and simple and he related to the idea of losing his mum and trying to find her again.My youngest showed no interest in it until just after his first birthday. He requests it over and over again now because he understands the "uh oh" concept as the baby owl falls out the tree. The language is simple, repetitive and perfect for children learning the simple rhythms of language. Comparing it to Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson is a bit misleading. Monkey Puzzle is great for helping children understand that… Read more
