This app is brimming with activities for your child. Its opening screen is clearly arranged to highlight the different sections, and there is ample description of the app’s contents. Each module is identified by name and can be accessed by touching its icon. The free content is clearly marked. I especially enjoyed the section labeled Cultures Videos that was available with the free version. Included in this module are 10 video clips of fascinating cultural celebrations. Be sure to check out the Shadow Theater from China. You will be astounded!
