What Fun Educational Apps Liked
As part of our quick review for our 5 a Day - Top Kids Apps Gone Free, we downloaded Great Expectations but haven’t viewed the other book apps in the series. We liked that it offers a nice summary of Charles Dickens classic as young children might not be up to read the full version yet! The kids here liked the old style illustration but wished there would be a word highlight as they listen to the story. It would be a great incentive to help and support young readers. The spelling game is cute.
Check it out, download now as this book apps is free for a limited time only … it can be a way for your kids to start discovering and reading famous classic English writer and social critic Charles Dickens.
