Gappy Learns Reading by Spinlight Studio is an educational app for children aged six through eight. Gappy, a friendly bunny character, teaches children basic reading skills. The app features over 200 three-lettered words: 174 basic consonant-vowel-consonant words and 37 common sight words. Children work, without pressure or time limits, to learn and practice letters, sounds, and basic word decoding skills. Completing activities earns children pieces they need to help Gappy build his house; with a wide variety of options, there are over 700 possible combinations. Although Spinlight Studio recommends this app for ages 6-8, our testers as young as four were able to enjoy and benefit from the game play.
