The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Kids can learn a year's worth of facts about animals, nature, our bodies, and more. While kids and parents cannot choose specific topics to hear and read about, the wide range of subjects has a little something for everyone. The daily pops of information in FACTS FOR KIDS - a new fact every day don't go into much depth, but they can be a starting point for additional research and discovery.

Ease of Play

The app is very simple with little navigation needed. The facts are read aloud so pre-readers can enjoy them, too.

What's it about?

Upon opening the app, kids see the fact for the day. Each fact is narrated and paired with a simple illustration. Tap the icon on the bottom to hear it repeated. Kids can go back to any previous facts but will have to wait until the next day to hear a new one. Kids can tap the star icon to add facts to their favorites and the heart icon to share facts via email and Facebook.

Is it any good?

FACTS FOR KIDS - A NEW FACT EVERY DAY is a fun way to discover something new. Like "word of the day" calendars or apps, kids get one fact each day, which is enough to get them thinking and still coming back for more the next day. The narration is nice and makes it possible for young kids to enjoy the facts, too. The facts cover a wide range of topics, so even if today's fact doesn't seem interesting, tomorrow's might. Who knew a sailfish can swim faster than a cheetah can run?

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Read the daily fact with your kids each day. Expand on the fact from your own knowledge and discuss the topic with your kids.
