★ Check out our new review for How The Grinch Stole Christmas! How The Grinch Stole Christmas! is a true classic and one of my favorite Christmas books of all time. Now “How The Grinch Stole Christmas!” is available as an ebook, a game app and a cool photography app for kids. Developed by Oceanhouse …

This is a great app for kids who are beyond simple number recognition. There are 4 different games within the app which reinforce different math challenges that you should expect to see in kindergarten such as understanding “more than”, sequencing numbers from low to high, as well as counting to 20.

Christmas is the time when families gather together – and kids go crazy over toys. But what about the run up to Christmas? There are letters to Santa to write, seasons greetings – and a whole bunch or apps to get the kids excited. Here are just some of them… Also, check out our Christmas …

This ebook is one of the most delightful books for young kids available on the iPhone / iPad / iPod as an app. One Rainy Day is a cute little story about a duck who loves the rain. The book is simple and gentle – and I would recommend it for babies old enough to engage in any book – digital or not.

Drawing Pad is by far one of the best drawing apps for kids. It’s simple to use, but not too childish in the design. As a designer, I just love the layout of the app – and if it had a bit more functionality (brush size, color picker, layers etc) would use it myself.

This simple app is beautifully illustrated by renowned childrens’ book artist, Eric Carle, in collaboration with Night and Day Studios.

The iWriteWords iPhone / iPad app helps kids learn and write the alphabet, numbers and words. The lite version is definitely worth checking out first – and may even be fine for your needs. Since I used it so much, I decided to opt for the paid version which is currently $2.99.

The Wheels on the Bus app is a wonderful app for even the youngest iPhone loving kids. Part interactive book and part music app, you can choose between several languages or musical instruments. You can even have fun recording your own version of this popular song.

I had thought that I was over the whole potty training phase, unfortunately a little potty training regression has changed that. Luckily this means I have decided to review some potty training apps. Like most apps I review I started off by checking out potty training apps in the App Store. Obviously, there are many …

My 4 year old still loves this app and has been playing with it for about a year. The nice thing about this app is that the instructions are read aloud, so kids can work on this independently.

This iphone app goes beyond the simple “learn to tell time” app. I downloaded this app when my 2nd grader was learning to tell time in a more advanced way. Time before, time after, elapsed time, as well as telling time to the minute.

This is a favorite little iPhone app and one of the first ones that my 2 year old played with. There is a free version, but a game this cute deserves to be paid for.
