“Best Apps Ever Award" Finalist (from 148apps.com)
What’s a word that begins with ‘N’? When his teacher asks Andrew that question, he says “NO!” And “NEVER!” Watch, read, listen, play and LAUGH through the story of Andrew’s trip from the principal’s office all the way to the Oval Office in this original story app full of games and surprises, including:
•Tip your iPad or iPhone screen to help Andrew through a maze to the principal’s office!
•Click on his teacher’s apple to take bites out of it!
•Tap on the goldfish bowl for a big surprise!
•And many more multi-touch animations!
"Sharply written, with expressive animation that wouldn't be out of place on a Nickelodeon cartoon show, this app takes a simple joke and amusingly ups the stakes all the way to the White House ... Here's a word for Andrew if he's asked for another starting with W: Winner." - Kirkus Reviews
"The story is very clever, and the pages have movement, like a cross between a storybook and animation." 4/5 Rating - Common Sense Media
Kids will read and play Andrew Answers again and again, laughing and finding new surprises every time they touch the screen. They’ll be having so much fun, they won’t even realize they’re learning the alphabet, recognizing letter sounds, building vocabulary, and understanding new words!

Andrew Answers for Resource Room
This is great! As a teacher, this app opens the door for students to generate additional words for each of the story points. For some of my higher students, it can be a jumping board for synonyms and antonyms - yes, sometimes using lower level material is a great way to work on higher level skills especially at the introductory level.
This was a perfect fit for my kindergartner. She was hooked after the first few minutes and kept asking to play it again as she said for the next few days. Very engaging and entertaining.
My 2 year old loved this app! Very cute, great for learning her letters and seeing and hearing words, very engaging. She was riveted!
