Literally for children

I thought it was going to have actually problems you can solve but it like levels of problem that help you understand parts of the question being asked but not to actually solve it.
I guess it's good for children who are trying to understand the question rather then answering it.

Does not fit on my iPhone screen.

I downloaded this app because it had good reviews. Right away I noticed it didn't fit correctly on my phone screen. I was pretty bummed and deleted it immediately.

Kept My Kid Entertained

My 9 year old spent more than an hour working on this app. He would spend time doing some levels and then use the coins he earned to play the game in the Reward Center. Then he would head back to learning to earn more coins. Learning and having fun --- that's a good deal in my book!
