Review Highlights:

Wow, we were really impressed by this collection of graphic-rich math games, read-along or by yourself books, educational songs, and classic nursery rhymes. The graphics and illustrations were outstanding, especially for a free resource. The narrator voices were exceptional and really demonstrated how to read out loud effectively, with expression, clarity, and timing. The games let young children practice basic math skills (mainly addition) in fun environments (rock climbing, balloon rides, etc.). My kids really engaged with the games. I was most impressed with the wide variety of concepts taught in the sing-along section. There were songs related to phonics, the alphabet, grammar and punctuation, usage, time and seasons, numbers and counting, and even math & science concepts. This section alone provides hours of entertainment and confidence-boosting educational experiences. We highly recommend this app! Thank you, Waterford!
