My husband is working late. The kids have had a long day of playing and are in need of a little quiet time. They may not realize it, but I sure do. I need to start making spaghetti for dinner. So, do I turn on the tv to help them chill? I could, but I have something better to offer this evening!
I pull out my phone and turn on a new app I just added. Immediately both kids are side by side and engrossed in the Curious World app. Now, I can work on dinner and know that my kids are getting “rest” and are interacting with something educational and fun. Win, win!
Curious World is a subscription- based app that delivers an expansive library of early learning activities that are tailored to children ages 3 – 7. Via iPad or iPhone, children can “tap into wonder” by learning through play in a trusted digital environment where every video, game and book is mapped to key learning areas and recommended based on your child’s age and developmental stage.
The app covers eight key learning areas. The area I was immediately impressed with was the literacy area that covers these skills:
- Early reading
- Vocabulary building
- Word recognition
- Listening skills
Children can read or have a story read to them in the Curious World app. The book collection is great. You have access to Curious George and the Hot Air Balloon, Stick and Stone, Rumpelstiltskin, Five Little Monkeys and many more.
Subscribers get access to an expansive collection of videos, books & games – all curated by global learning company Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. New activities are added weekly, so your child won’t run out of new experiences.
The offerings can also be tailored to your chid’s age (up to four children). Plus, caregivers can access the grownups dashboard to see a summary of areas visited and time spent in each category.
My first visit to the grownups dashboard showed me that my oldest son engaged with videos the most. The learning areas that were covered the most were science and executive function. His favorite activities were To The Rescue! and Curious George Pancake Chef.
I love that my kids are engaged in learning activities, engaging with literacy and having fun. Plus, the app is advertisement free. Time to boil the noodles and get dinner on the table while they are busy. You too can get this app.
The Curious World app is currently available for Apple iPhones and iPads running iOS 8.0+ and can be downloaded from the App Store.
