This software would complement any literacy curriculum nicely, especially one that has or needs a basic phonics component. It is reasonably interactive and motivating, although it would appeal to different learners for different reasons. Some of the vocabulary items are too difficult for beginning literacy students and there are some shortcomings to the keyboarding unit. All in all, though, learners should welcome the way The Alphabet is constructed and the opportunities it gives to learn and practice the different skills associated with the development of literacy.
