This program, geared for very young people just learning to read, allows children to quickly and easily create short words of the consonant-vowel-consonant pattern by simply tapping the screen. The new word appears with a "one-armed bandit" display along with a definition. Invalid or inappropriate words cannot be created. This is ideal for learning some new words, reinforcing the sounds of letters, and simple word families. A more experienced reader may have to help with some of the definitions. Early readers can try to guess what the next word will be when they tap one of the three letters.
