Dear Parent or Teacher,
This project is a labor of love for me. I developed this map puzzle game series for my 3 year old daughter after I read a study in a parenting magazine about the poor geography skills typical of today's children.
My daughter has been my lil’ tester while my team & I continue to refine the Kids Maps apps to be fun, easy-to-use and educational. After the initial versions turned out so well, I decided to release this puzzle game as a product for all kids to enjoy. I have now created an entire series: United States, Europe, South & Central America, Asia & U.S. Pocket Edition for phones.
I sincerely hope your children enjoy all the fun and education built into my Kids Maps Puzzle Game Series as much as my daughter does. With your support, I will continue to make more games.
If you have feedback or any technical issues, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to your input!
Thanks again for contributing to my daughter’s college fund!

highly recommend this series
I just had someone recommend this at our kids school. They were absolutely right: the Kids Maps series is excellent for teaching kids (and the parents) geography in a fun way. The facts are interesting. The game is well done. The music is pleasant. The settings are suitable to make it a challenge for our 7 year old, or easy enough to play for my twin 3 years olds.
I am new to Apple devices, so I have never reviewed anything before. When looking for games for my nephews to play, i founds Kids Maps. As an educator, I wanted to reach out and say: great job! I hope you read this and know that you are really on to something here. keep up the great work. I will be sure to review the entire series.
My kids love this game
I was very impressed with the original Kids Maps. it kept my kids attention much longer than I would have thought (since they burn thru games pretty quick). but this is even better. it also adds features i thought were missing from the first like capitals.
