Pretty good...

It cuts off the pictures when you save them. Would be nice to see a fix for that.

Great App!

Animal Planet Hide and Seek is a well thought out and fun set of games for preschoolers and early elementary grades to learn about animals. For each specific animal, there are fun facts to read or have read to you, puzzles, tracing activities, a memory game, and a pattern matching game. Each activity comes in a easy or hard version to help extend game play as your child gains competency. I really like that there are real life pictures of pets as I think it helps ground kids in a more realistic way and thereby begin to generalize what they are learning. General play activities such as piano play, sticker and painting are also included. In this menu under options are links to rate the app, leave feedback, and talking points for parents and educators. I would definitely recommend this app for animal lovers.
