Wendy Whale HD

An alphabet book with fun tongue twisters ...

This is a simple but fun alphabet book with computer graphic illustrations and text that highlights as narrated. Each of the 26 letters of the English alphabet are represented. There is a tiny bit of animation on some pages, along with interactive elements that reinforce early literacy.

This app is solidly made from PicPocket Books, including settings to turn off narration. There is no page guide or home button but otherwise this is a very easy app to navigate. Simple swipe-style page turning along with a large & easy-to-read font make this a great title for young learners.

This title was published in print in 2009 but is now out-of-print. As a digital offering, this is a nice little alphabet book with lots of letter learning! It's a great way to keep youngsters entertained and making visual connections with letter sounds and images.

All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.

Story Synopsis - Wendy Whale HD

Who Will Wendy Whale Watch? contains tongue twisters for each of the letters of the English alphabet, from "Awesome Ashley Anteater aims an acorn at an alligator" to "Zippy Zachary Zebara zigzags Zelda Zebu's zinnias". Each page shows the letter and a list of words that start with it. Then there is a second page with images that start with that letter ... tap any one of them to hear the name of the image. Only images with names that start with that letter are named, usually four per page.
