Win a Free App from Our Holiday Gift Guide!
When an app is loads of fun and creative -- and it teaches kids how to become shepherds of their environment -- everyone wins.
This week, we're giving away 10 copies of Ansel and Clair: Little Green Island. The app, available on iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch, was featured in our Holiday Gift Guide this year and received our highest rating both for quality and for learning potential. It's an ecological-simulation app that we rated ON for kids 7 and up; each level introduces an environmental issue, and then lets kids figure out how to solve it. Players become the owner of an island and can view it from different angles to see trash, oil spills, and more that they must help fix, earning them Green Bucks to buy things like trees.
The app is regularly priced at $4.99, but we've partnered with the developer, Cognitive Kid, Inc., to give away 10 copies to our lucky readers so your kids can enjoy it, too. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below, and we'll email you by Monday, December 9, at 4 p.m. PT if you've won.
