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.

My daughter is passionate about science. This sounds like a great app to further encourage her learning. Thanks CSM for sharing this with the community.
As a science teacher for grades k-4, this app would be an awesome addition to the classroom learning experience! Thanks Common Sense rock!
What a generous offer from an amazingly supportive source. Thank you Common Sense for yet another opportunity to share and educate!
I'd love to win a copy for my granddaughters. Environmental consciousness is something we should all be working to instill in our kids.
What a treat! I use Common Sense Media all the time when considering purchases for my three grandchildren. This app looks like another winner. Thanks for the opportunity. :)
Hey- I would love to win the Little Green Island app!! I have a 10 year old daughter who loves playing these types of games. She loves Harvest Moon, Animal Crossing, and Pikmin 3. She could write a review for you, compairing them. Thanks for giving people a chance to win this game! That is the true spirit of Christmas, giving! Hope I hear from you on December 9th!!! Enjoy the holidays everyone!!
Cannot wait to check this app out. With perfect Common Sense Media Quality and Learning ratings it has to be good! Thank you Common Sense Media for making parenting in today's Digital World easier and fun!
I am so thankful for Common Sense media. Even my 7 year old knows that we will consult your site to learn of media that is good for him and appropriate for his age!
Always consult commonsense media whenever my daughter wants to see a new movie, show or any media. My daughter knows there is no fighting what it says here! This app looks great!
I regularly consult Common Sense Media to read reviews of movies and apps before we watch or download. So far you have not steered me wrong. Hope we win this very cool looking app. Thank you!
This App sounds like the perfect App for my 9 year old creative scientist. Sounds like he will love and rise to the challenge of solving the environmental hazzards on the little green island!!
