Ratings and Reviews
After searching for both an educational yet interesting app, I've finally found it! It's very well done and I'll be able to use it over and over since some much information is being covered. Love the Amendments section.
So that's how it works
Great app. So often we hear what is happening with our government and don't quite get it. This app explains it all, very clearly. And not just for kids. Even contact info for all our representatives. Keep up the good work Kids a Discover.
Perfect app for a long car trip
Downloaded this to keep my kids entertained during a long road trip over the weekend. Kept them entertained for the entire trip and more.
Another great app by Kids Discover. Terrific value at a very reasonable price.
