Plants as so much more than food: Biomes , photosynthesis, clothing, household stuff, baseball bats, art, medicine. And does it in fun get involved ways. Colorful,engaging thoughtful and kids will learn while having fun.

I loved this app. So informative and interactive. The only thing is that I wish that kids discover would make a more in depth app for tweens and teens. Talking about the chemistry behind photosynthesis. I would really like a more in depth version of all the kids discover apps. Thank you for your amazing app though.
