Needs motivation to improve
My daughter is enjoying the app which I love but I wish the app had some form of motivation for her to get the right answer. My daughter is very good at figuring the easy way out and if she doesn't get the answer right on the first try this lets her guess and guess until it is right. It would be nice if it did something like go back to the previous task if she gets it wrong three times so if she really wants to progress she's got to think about her answers rather than guess. Still it is a great app and a problem that probably doesn't happen too often to other people my daughter is just like that.
Thorough and fun approach
My girls get excited to play this app. It's a game to them. They love the concept of traveling and do not think much about the skills they're practicing as they move locations. I played through all the levels and was impressed by the variety and challenge incorporated. I am looking forward to upcoming apps from this developer.
A great comprehensive approach to learning!
My daughter is 5 and entering kindergarten in the next few months…she loved going through this app…we are anxiously awaiting the next level!
Note: While she is bright, this app seems like it would be to be much too easy for s 1st grader...
