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Withdrawn: Unable to download since new update.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.

Je viens de télécharger les packs gratuits et il n’y en a aucun en français, malgré ce qu’annonce ici. Pourtant, mon iPhone est en français et même si je force le logiciel plutôt que de simplement être en monde par défaut, tout est en anglais. Très peu utile pour des enfants francophones...

Sinon, je donnerait 4 ou 5 étoiles, car l'information, le côté éducatif et la musique sont de haute qualité!
