Good Free App of the Day: A to Z Music Videos from ABCmouse.com gets kids singing new letter songs

A to Z Music Videos from ABCmouse.com by Age of Learning, Inc. offers cartoon music videos specifically focusing on each letter of the alphabet. The lyrics go beyond, "A is for apple." Each video lasts roughly 3 minutes and introduces a variety of vocabulary with lines like, "at the beach Amanda found an abalone shell." Each word beginning with the chosen letter is displayed on screen to help reinforce the new letter.

** Please note: This app has in-app purchases, but they can easily be disabled in the settings of your device.
Only the app's developer can control when an app is free or not. All apps that we post as free are verified to be free at the time of this post. We make no guarantees otherwise.**

In A to Z Music Videos, the letters A-C are unlocked initially, and additional songs can be unlocked for tickets. You can unlock in any order you wish. So if your child really likes the letter J, then they can save up tickets and unlock that one first instead of having to unlock letters D through I first. Tickets are earned for each video watched as well as randomly earning a spin on the ticket wheel. Tickets can also be purchased through in-app purchases if desired, though it is not necessary.

There are many helpful features within the app including the option to display all lyrics on the bottom of the screen with the feature letter highlighted and see and review all lyrics for unlocked songs. The glossary section lists the different words with the ability to play the pronunciation and read or listen to the definition.
