If you have children ages six and under we've found an app that offers a selection of free animated stories that are also interactive. The Leo's Pad app for your iPad features a series of "appisodes" that are meant for the specific age group of six and under. Here they will follow Leonardo da Vinci and his friends on all kinds of learning adventures. What's fun is that da Vinci is just young in these appisodes, as are his friends, so it appeals to the kids.
It can be tricky to find a way to make learning fun and engaging for your kids so this app offers a great solution. As mentioned you're provided with a series of animated appisodes that are interactive and best of all free. They have been specially developed to appeal to kindergarten and preschool-aged kids, which means you can expect plenty of bright and colorful graphics, kid-friendly controls, and content that is appropriate for them. Kids will find themselves immersed in the adventures of Leo and features "research-based content" that will build their social, cognitive, emotional, problem solving, recognition, and self-control skills.
Leo's Pad scores very high with customers getting 4.5 out of five stars. Scrolling through the customer comments it's nothing but positive remarks. You'll find such descriptions as "the app sets the standard for educational apps," "fantastic focus on academic and socio-emotional skills," "super-engaging," and "teaching my kids a ton." These are exactly the kind of comments you want to see from an education app.
Fabulous graphics and animations
Using the App
The way the app works is that kids will work through the interactive stories that have games throughout. These games not only keep their attention but add to the learning experience. For parents there is a tool built into the app called the Parent's Pad. This allows parents to monitor their child's progress so then can then give feedback and work with the child on areas they need a little extra help. Leo's Pad features adaptive gameplay which means the app will adapt to your child's particular play. Your child will be challenged at a level that is neither too advanced nor too basic for them, again ensuring they get the most possible out of the experience.
There are so many positives about this app it's hard to point out just a couple. I do think it's important to mention the graphics, which will really blow your kids away. The fact that there are more than 25 adaptive games means this app provides plenty of entertainment and educational value.
