QUALITY
 

AURACLE - HURRAY FOR PRE-K! offers 2- to 4-year-olds a sneak peek inside a preschool classroom. It does so in a way that should get kids energized about going, and at the same time alleviate any fears they may have. It shows readers that they will meet new friends, learn new things, and get to partake in exciting activities like painting and building with blocks. Certain words are repeated over and over for emphasis. Interactivity includes personalization options, and kid's parents can record their own narration. The app has a very specific target audience, but for those kids, Hurray for Pre-K! can serve as a useful tool for introducing the concept of school.
