ABCmouse Review

The ABC Mouse app is one of the best preschool learning websites for children ages 2 to 8. The Early Learning Academy is a full online curriculum for pre-k, kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade levels including more than 9,000 learning activities in reading, math, beginning science, social studies, art, and music. After the initial splash screen from the developers, the user is shown a ‘Home’ screen to sign up for the 30-day trial. This is ‘parental’ protected and it is noted that ABCmouse app has a ‘Child Safe’ logo ensuring the app has no external links, pop-up adverts and no advertising.

How much content is on ABCmouse?

There are over 9,000 learning activities in the form of books, kids videos to stream, printables, games, songs, puzzles, art activities and more. Students will be awarded a certificate once the lessons have been completed. The application recommends that your child completes at least one lesson every time they use ABC Mouse. Each learning experience uses previous experience the child has used to reinforce previous learning. 

ABCmouse app curriculum consists of ten levels of difficulty, designed for preschool-aged children (3+) through second-graders (8+). Each level features around 850 age-appropriate educational activities.

Is ABC mouse app easy to use?

Once the user has successfully logged in the parent will need to set up their child’s profile. This includes an avatar, date of birth, gender and academic level. It is noted that the academic levels shown are for the American education system. There is an excellent introduction video to ABCmouse app which we recommend watching. This video is informative and explains the curriculum content as well as how the application uses a ‘Learning Path’ which is a structured learning experience of over 850 lessons for your child accordingly to their academic age.

How does the ABCMouse app help improve learning?

My Learning Path is your child's Step-by-Step learning path, which is a set of lessons and activities that teaches the academic knowledge and skills appropriate to your child's level.

Along with the ’Learning Path’ children can also explore books, videos, songs, puzzles and much more. Students can access subject activities via the ‘Classroom’ or they can take a field trip to the zoo or farm. Children can also use the ‘Basics’ area where they can focus on foundation skills for core subjects. ‘Tickets’ are awarded every time an activity is completed. These tickets can be used to purchase items for their avatar, room, aquarium, shopping area and much more. This not only creates motivation for the child but also creates a fun, exciting learning environment.   

The ‘ABC Mouse Learning Academy’ contains a vast amount of educational content that is beautifully presented and has great educational value. The platform is laid out in an intuitive and child-friendly manner. For this review, we will focus on just a few of the thousands of the activities available. We also recommend Khan Academy Kids, which is our Editors' Choice among free learning apps.

The ‘Home‘ dashboard displays your child’s avatar, name, tickets gained, a map, search and settings. The main screen displays 8 sections; Learning Path, Classroom, Map, about me, Zoo, what’s new, Math Games and Things to do.

Each press is accompanied by a voice-over to enhance the learning experience supported by some great music. We did note that is often a lag in the loading of the content this is mainly due to the size of ABCmouse app and the vast amount of content. These topics were chosen from within the ‘Classroom’ platform. Each of these topics is supported by further content; books & Poems, Videos, Games, Puzzles, Art and Music.

‘Reading and Writing’ – ‘Books & Poems’ - Here your child will find several books and writing activities. These include features such as narration, word definition, the pace of reading, highlighting and more. Each book is beautifully presented with stunning illustrations and animation. 

The ‘Games’ section within this topic area includes several games such as ‘Sound Sculptures’ where the child is asked to create a given word by breaking it down into sections.

All of these activities are great fun, interactive and encourages the child when answers are incorrect.

‘Math’ – ‘Puzzles’ – ‘How much money’ – Here the child is asked to place monetary denominations into the slots according to the pictures of notes and coins shown.

‘Math’ – ‘Art’ – ‘Painting by numbers – Children are encouraged to add up numbers to create a single number that fills in the given drawing. Once completed the child is awarded ‘tickets’ and the picture can be saved, printed or made into a Puzzle.

Why we love ABCMouse app

The app is an excellent app that works well over both platforms; tablet and computer.  The content within the app and learning experience is quite mind-blowing as the developers should be congratulated on how much ABCmouse app covers. The learning activities are well presented, great fun and differentiation for users. Sometimes the content within the app seemed overwhelming and we often lost sight of what section the child was in, what they were learning and how they were progressing.

However, we found that if the child stuck to the ‘Learning Path’ progress seemed more defined. We also enjoyed looking at the ‘Progress tracker’ within the ‘Settings’ section which displayed their child’s progress including lessons, dates, tickets, subject progress, number of activities and more. We felt that valuable information like this should not be hidden within the ‘Settings’ section but accessed via the ‘Home’ dashboard for both parent and child to view. is designed to provide a structured, rewards and play-based environment for learning basic skills in reading, math, science, music, art, social studies, health, and more. ABCmouse uses games and activities of increasing difficulty to build a rewards-based curriculum. 

What age is recommended for?

With many educational programs and apps available for preschoolers, how do you know which ones are worth your time? ABCmouse designed for pre-K and kindergarten students offers age-appropriate content that comes in an engaging format. The content focuses on reading, writing, math, art and music, music and songs, social studies, and science and health. Content is presented through art, books, songs, puzzles, games, and printables. 

Kids follow a learning path that gets progressively more challenging as they use the site. Their level is set based on starting age, and they can either follow a customized learning path or choose activities at random. Kids are motivated by ABC Mouse’s tickets and reward system.

What do ABCMouse users think?

“This year, I implemented ABCmouse in every lesson, not only during my lesson time but also during the activities and center time. My students started picking up their letters faster, they were applying phonics faster, they were recognizing sight words faster. When testing came around, I had 78% of my class test advanced in foundational skills. That’s never happened before. . . . ABCmouse captivates a child’s attention in such a wonderful, marvelous way. It’s not just them memorizing stuff, they have the skill, and they’re making those connections across the content areas.”

- Kindergarten Teacher

“On ABCmouse my children are learning to read, they’re doing math problems, social studies, science, everything. . . . Since we’ve begun ABCmouse, our scores are just amazing!”

- Elementary School Teacher
