What parent testers had to say:
Ooka Island is a wonderful app for emerging readers. It is fun, engaging, and interactive. My son is engaged the entire time he is playing with the app and learning as he play. He has began sounding out the letters we read in books and recognizing words he has been exposed to in the game.
Ooka island is a very fun and engaging app. It encouraged my child to practice her reading skills in a fun manner, that she didn't realize she was doing reading practice.
This App provides a very useful service - namely helping your child read and build their vocabulary. It does so through an easy to use, child friendly interface. The characters are relatable to the different gender types and the stories and activities are interesting. Like many learning games, it would be nice for new features and content to be constantly added. Overall I think it's a very good product. Thanks for letting me test it.
