Not the least of these is that the address bar in the browser is very hard for non-readers to use. And think about how to build a login page for someone who doesn't yet know the alphabet.
Curiosity Clubhouse, our experiment in the web for pre-readers has solved many these problems and added additional capabilities that have resulted in improved end-of-year reading and math scores for Barbara’s kindergartners.
