ItzaBitza Educational Reading Game for kids + giveaway – this game is so much fun!

This is one of the most entertaining game I've played in a long time.  Yes, I admit I played ItzaBitza.  My kids weren't even around.  The concept of ItzaBitza is awesome..I've never seen anything like it.

ItzaBitza promotes reading comprehension, artisitic and imaginative creativity and provides an exciting gaming experience for kids ages four and older.  I was amazed time and time again by how the game responded to my drawings and made them come to life.  

Here are just a few things you can do in the first ItzaBitza scene:

  • Draw a tree, apples grow on it.  
  • Draw a moon and stars light up the sky and your Sketchie goes inside the house you drew, goes upstairs and goes to sleep.
  • Draw an envelope and your Sketchie takes it to the mailbox.
  • Draw a cup and watch your Sketchie drink out of it.

The Sketchie your child chooses at the beginning of the game (a boy or a girl) asks your child to draw things, including a house and a tree, then the drawings become part of the animation and story.  An example would be when I drew a tree with leaves, the game added apples to the tree.  You can see my award winning drawing (ha!) below.  Click on the image to view the larger version.  I didn't draw the flowers.  When I drew the sun, the flowers grew!  How cool is that?

Through out the game, the Sketchie gives you ideas and little games to play via a little word bubble that pops up when you click on him or her.  If your child has trouble reading a word in the bubble, all she has to do is move
the mouse over the word and it is sounded out for her.  Great reading practice!


There are several scenes that can be unlocked as your child progresses in the game including a camping scene and a naunted house.  You'll have to buy the game to find out what happens in each of the scenes!

Buy a copy of ItzaBitza at for $17.99 (current price) OR buy and download the game here.

I’d love to win this for my three year old. I have three other kids that know how to read, and two of those LOVE nothing more than to sit and read a book. I wish that for this one as well. Thanks for sharing!

I love that it helps them draw!

Thank you SO much for reviewing ItzaBitza. As a mom of two girls and a believer that video games can help our kids learn important “stuff” I’m very passionate about turning learning into something kids CHOOSE to do.
