What's New in Version 3.2
This app is awesome. I purchased it for my kids at a special rate last December. The articles give the kids an idea on what is going on in the world. My second and third grades can talk about daily events on what is published and adult know what they are talking about because it was in the news. I love how one the world map it explains where in the world the news is taking place and how far it is from where you live. Also, you can choose to have the article read to you if it is to difficult. The picture are also great.
What a great app! It's a great way for kids (and grown ups!) to read the news! The stories are well written in a way for kids to understand while providing them with unbiased facts. There is always a great mix of current events, sports, technology and fun interest pieces to ensure a well rounded edition each day. I highly recommend it for everyone!
Wonderful introduction to current events for kids
This app does an amazing job of introducing young readers to what's happening around the world. My kids are engaged and involved every day with the news, learning about anything from scientific discoveries, world elections, or the latest on sports.
They're learning to love reading!
