    Awesome

    I have a friend that JUST turned six and she loves this game. I have to warn you, it is for little kids, ages 8+ may be bored with this game.

    No glitches, takes a while to install, but its worth the wait!

    This is free! Amazing!

    My son loves this and I cannot gert over how much is on here and that it is free. There are about ten games they can play that teach a ton of different things preschoolers and a little older will need to know. You can choose on each game an easy or hard version which there really hasn't been too much difference in some of the games for my two year old when he picks hard over easy. He loves this app and so do I it is teaching him tons of things he needs to know how to do...
    ....tracing, matching, letters, patterns, sorting, counting, colors I can't even remember it all

    Freezes

    My 3 year old grandson loves to play this game but it's frustrating because it freezes up quite a bit. If this issue would be fixed I would give it a higher rating.

    Freezes too much.

    It would be a nice concept, but it freezes up too much to be enjoyable. It especially freezes when you try to exit out. I have to restart the Nook, then.

    Great app.....but freezes a lot

    My 5 year old autistic son and my 3 year old daughter both LOVE this app! It has so many great learning tools in it. The MAJOR drawback to it is that it freezes up constantly and you have to turn the device completely off and restart....other than that it's great!

    Fabulous App!

    My grandchildren are 2, 5 and 7. The PBS Parents App kept all of them interested and fighting over whose turn it was to use it! From creating pictures with a myriad of characters, to teaching about counting, this app has it all. I highly recommend it.
