Studies show that the knowledge of nursery rhymes has a beneficial influence on the development of literacy skills. Singing along helps slow down the language and stresses all of the different sounds that make up words. This app helps reinforce the classic Itsy Bitsy Spider.

Follow the spider from scene to scene interact with the various pages. Learn about the environment and nature, count with a squirrel, and play peek-a-boo with a frog. Sing along, or record your own voice!
