Great app , educational & beautiful layout!

Love this for my kids!

Not so accurate

I love the concept and the illustrations, but some of the facts are not accurate. For example, we didn’t land on the moon. Yes, USA was engaged in a “space race”, but it’s painfully obvious that we faked the landing. It’s about time we start thinking critically and stop propagating false narratives like this. I homeschool my kids, and I was really excited to have possibly found “honest” historical content to teach them.. but much to my disappointment, it contains only partial truths. I don’t want my kids to grow up learning the same lies I grew up learning.

I wish it didn’t have to pay for books

I think that you should not have to pay for the book. When you already have to pay for the app itself
