Ansel & Clair American Bowl iPad AppWhat We Thought:

This app is being compared to Stack The States.  Stack the States is one of our most played, favorite apps for the kids.  That being said I think this Ansel & Clair American Bowl iPad App has the potential to rank right up there with my children!  The facts are varied and interesting, the pictures greatly enhance learning and recognition of major people and events in our history, and the added element of the fun bowling game keeps them wanting to play more!

The cost is inexpensive like Stack the States and is well worth the money spent both in learning potential and engagement time for the kids. ¬†We carry our iPad with us when we are out and about, like for doctor’s appointments, music lessons or classes for one or more of the kids. ¬†Having educational apps like this allow me to keep the kids engaged in something not only fun but ultimately educational!
