Intuitive: Although most early learning games focus exclusively on upper-case letters, over 90% of the English language is written in lower-case, putting emerging readers who are only familiar with upper-case letters at a disadvantage. Word Chase! includes only lower-case letters.
Orientation: Small touches like the bee buzzing along the bottom of each word card helps emerging readers instantly recognize when a word is right side up or upside down.
