a4cwsn's insight:
“Richard Scarry’s Busytown Cars are a fun way to introduce vehicles, spelling, and letter order while enjoying the amazing art work, A4cwsn”

Richard Scarry’s delightfully wacky cars come to life in this interactive educational game for kids ages 2-6. When the Apple Car arrives at a Busytown stoplight, kids spell a-p-p-l-e to help it zoom through the intersection. With five playing modes, including letter matching, early phonics and spelling, this app grows with your child.

Classic favorites like the Banana Mobile, Pickle Car and of course Lowly Worm’s Apple Car are among the 48 unique vehicles children can help zoom through the Busytown intersection. Brave Officer Flossy is hot on the trail of that bad driver Dingo. And look out for Goldbug along for the ride.

As children seek new challenges, parents can adjust the difficulty level.

At Level 1, children learn to recognize and match letters, and experience putting letters together to make words.
Level 2 maintains the skills from level 1 and adds left to right ordering to encourage children to match letters from left to right.
Level 3 provides exposure to early phonics. Gameplay is similar to Level 2, but now children can hear letter sounds come together to make words.
Level 4 challenges kids to figure out the order of the letters based on their sounds, without visual hints.
Level 5 brings in big words and sight words to help early readers practice spelling.

Be sure to check out our other popular educational play apps including First Letters and Phonics, First Words Animals, and First Words Deluxe.
