Great Apps for Kids!

Here is a great app that deserves to be highlighted in our app review series.  It is made by Kidcaptive and is called Leo’d Pad.
It features a young Leo (inspired by Leonardo DaVinci) and his friend Gally (from Galileo).  They experience compelling adventures that engage young children in learning academic and social skills.
It is beautifully animated, highly creative and is an engaging way to teach Kindergarten skills through personalized journeys and discovery. - See more at: http://www.hcpl.net/content/great-apps-kids#sthash.Lx3RoBB4.dpuf

Created by Stanford University researchers, this is a great quality app that utilizes story immersion as an active and entertaining way to child’s cognitive development.
It is customizable to let the parent know the level and style of their child’s learning.  It also gives suggestions about how to help each individual child reach benchmarks that are critical to a child’s lifelong learning success.

The first chapter of Leo’s Pad is free then other chapters can be purchased separately.  Each chapter stands alone as an excellent story and game.
