A cool new learning app from Smithsonian! I think it is great to be able to review this app as I get to introduce ABCs to our 2.5 years old girl and reinforce this for our 5 years old boy who is already learning this in his preK.

Description from the product page:
"Get ready… blast off! Explore outer space with fun rhymes and colorful illustrations in this one of a kind Alphabet of Space storybook app from Smithsonian! From Astronaut to Zenith, and everything in between, there is so much for kids to learn about the universe."
* This app is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and the words pop out to tell you what it is!
* There are some new words that I myself get to learn too! Now who says this app is just for kiddos?!
* This particular page reminded me of a short presentation that our 5 years old boy did when we celebrated his birthday in his preK few months ago. All his classmates sat on the floor in a big circle with a yellow printed sun in the center and our boy, holding a plastic globe ball circled the sun slowly, 5 times, each time to signify a year passed. So, 5 times, 5 years, his birthday this year. Nice!
* There are options to go to other alphabets instead of going through one by one.
* I like that there is an option to use new narrator's voice (aka me!)
* Overall an educational and fun app for the kiddos while learning about space!
