Learning is important for all kids, but it isn’t always fun. A task like learning your letters can sometimes be monotonous and not very entertaining, but thankfully, there are tools like the new Jesse the Jack’s ABC Zoo app and iBook that can help make learning letters more fun for preschool children ages 2-6. This fun an interactive preschool app and iBook is a great way to get children familiar with the letters of the alphabet, while having a blast with the famous pooch Jesse the Jack!

In Jesse’s dream, he drifts off to the ABC Zoo, where he encounters a different animal to go with each letter of the alphabet.
Two Ways to Play
There are two ways that children can enjoy Jesse the Jack’s ABC Zoo app and iBook, store and play modes. In story mode, Jesse the Jack leads kids through the ABC Zoo on an interactive adventure to meet all the different animals of the alphabet.
