Just look at all the reviews:
He’s 19 months and we’ve been using the app for 2 weeks. It’s made a night and day difference in his speech, communication and confidence level! Thank you so much!
My two year old’s vocabulary is FLOURISHING. This is a must have for any parent who wants to give their child a jump on vocab and speech.

Scavenger hunt will run from Wednesday, March 25 through Tuesday, March 31.
