News vetted for children with relevant content, not sensationalized, and geared developmentally for elementary school age children – simply brilliant!

Five new stories are published each day, covering the latest in world news, science, sports, government, as well as the offbeat stories that all kids love. We feel this app has a wide audience appeal. With parental assistance, it can be shared with children as young as 6-8. It’s incredibly appealing to older elementary school kids and middle schoolers, who can use it independently. A must have! Read full review
