Why should learning to write your ABC's be boring? Swim through the undersea ocean to choose a letter, and then practice writing the letter using guided strokes against a backdrop unique to each letter. Watch an eerie nautilus float by as you draw an "N", or watch a volcanic undersea vent erupt as you draw a "V".

LetterWriter:Oceans doesn't just display the letter and leave your child to randomly draw on the screen. Instead, it prompts your child with the correct stroke orders in sequence, reinforcing the stroke motion both before and after they make it. Their companion in this is a friendly fish who swims to the start of the stroke, and follows their finger along as they make it. When the stroke is completed, they get instant feedback, and earn a starfish each time they finish a letter.

When your child earns the fourth starfish for a letter, they unlock a storybook, which tells a brief poem, celebrating language and the wonders of the undersea world.

- Created by parents and educators.
- Contains exercises for all 26 capital letters, each with its own unique backdrop.
- Great for kids learning to write - pre-K through kindergarten.
- Younger kids can enjoy it as an interactive ABC's storybook.
