Engaging but inaccurate

The elk label is attached to a picture of a moose. The app said that elk are known as moose - they are totally different animals and look quite different.

Kids like it.

Update: problem fixed. Kids have loads of fun wth this app. It's kinda big, and the research is iffy at best, but no worse than most things targeted at this age group.

Withdrawn: Unable to download since new update. As of 2016/08/30, this app can't be used. Used to be a fun app for the kids. Once it is usable again, will update to the 4 stars it otherwise deserves.

No sound at all!

I tried to redownload this app twice and tested on different iPhones, it still does have sound. Really want to fix this problem. Thanks
