Nickelodeon Launches Preschool Literacy Mobile App

Anything that encourages children to read more and to build their reading skills is a-okay with us... so we're pleased to see Nickelodeon’s brand-new literacy app, Wallykazam!: Letter and Word Magic.

Inspired by Wallykazam!, the network’s latest preschool literacy TV series, the app aims to help kids develop phonemic awareness, letter knowledge and letter-sound associations, and promote excitement about words and learning to read. As one of the first kid-focused media companies to launch content on the iPad, Nickelodeon continues to provide compelling content to the platform. The network’s apps are designed so kids can interact with their favorite characters in new and different ways, on all the platforms they have available to them.
