Ratings and Reviews
As a mother of 3 (4Y, 7Y, 9Y) I am more then happy to recommend this issue. The amount of information in there is vast and elaborate. Although all of my 3 kids have a different need for information due to their age group, they all enjoy it very much. My 4 year old (well almost) fell in love with the baby penguin while my 9 year old got intrigued by the weather station section. I have been a print subscriber to Kids Discover for some time now (with great satisfaction!) but this digital version exceeds all expectations.
Fantastic Apps but...
These interactive magazines are simply amazing and a great tool for engaging learning in the classroom. The diagram of moon phases is backwards. It shows the sun rays at the top, then when looking at the moon phases, full moon is always opposite the suns rays. The app has the full moon on the same side. Otherwise absolutely beautiful and intriguing information for this generation of digital natives!
As a teacher that has to get students to understand the history of space exploration, I was very pleased to find all my students needed to know in one place. The images, videos, and photos are superb and engaging. The app can teach my kids while I work with small groups. Money well invested.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
