Good but......

Its a great app and a fun way to learn but there are only 5 videos. If there were more it would be five stars.

My kids watch these all the time

I installed the app several years ago and my kids still watch these over and over — especially Bad Date, Scale Ella and Ratey the Math Cat. They’ll definitely understand rates and ratios by the time they learn about them in school!
