SOFTWARE

"As the programmer," said Joe Sokolov, "I wanted to build a letter game where there is no way to make a mistake. The cursors guide the strokes for each letter, helping develop the coordination needed for successful writing.

"If the user picks up a finger while tracing the letter, the cursor waits until it is touched again. This is especially helpful for very young children and anyone with coordination challenges."

ART

"As the artist," Leslie Arwin said, "I want children to be able to enter a world of beautiful letters. We created letters out of familiar objects, like ice cream, and some unusual ones, like kelp and Saguaro cactus.

"By hearing the words read aloud, children learn to pronounce them. Images hidden under the letters will keep both children and adults guessing. We provide an info button so that an adult can read about the objects."
