A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Books cover a number of topics. Kids can learn more about math, science, history, geography, letters, numbers, and more. Quizzes and games help reinforce learning.

Ease of Play

Kids will be able to navigate the experience with little trouble, but kids need to choose to save downloaded books; it doesn't happen automatically.

Violence & Scariness

Some of the stories may deal with content that kids find scary or uncomfortable, such as slavery. There are also examples of some basic unkind behavior, typically in the process of sharing a moral.

What's it about?

SMART KIDZ CLUB: EBOOKS & MATH is a large library of ebooks covering a wide range of subjects from the alphabet to dog breeds to countries of the world to science. Books for young kids focus on vocabulary building, while older kids can learn about areas of interest. There are fictional stories as well, many of which cover common themes for kids like building friendships. The books are listed by age and reading level to help kids pick out stories that are just right. Kids might choose to have the story read aloud, or to read it on their own. Or, of course, a parent or sibling might like to read it to them. If kids choose to have the book read, the words are highlighted with the narration. Also, there are words kids can click on to get a definition. At the end of each book, there' at least one activity to help kids think about and retain the information. Some are games, like a hangman game with a snowman, while others feel more like school work, such as the sequencing activities where kids put key scenes in order. Parents can access reports on the website with information about where kids have spent their time.

Is it any good?

This is a large library of educational ebooks with enough of a mix to appeal to a wide range of kids, plus games to keep it interactive and fun. The content in Smart Kidz Club: eBooks & Math is good, but not always amazing. Still, there's a lot of learning to be had, and kids will likely be entertained. If there's one complaint, it's that the narration is sometimes choppy because it's synced with the highlighting. But for kids who are already reading to themselves, or for adults who want access to a library of simple books to read to the kids in their lives, Smart Kidz Club: eBooks & Math is a nice collection. The games and activities are a bonus for kids who need a little more incentive to spend time with a book. Better still, stories can be downloaded to a variety of devices for reading on-the-go. Great for travel when you don't want to cart a miniature library in your luggage!

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about choosing a good book based on reading level and interest. How can you tell if you might like a traditional book or ebook on SmartKidz Club: eBooks & Math? How can you decide if it's too easy or difficult? Practice the "five finger test": Pick a random page and read. Put a finger up for each word you don't know. If you have more than five fingers up, it's probably too hard to enjoy alone, but if you have no fingers up, it might be too easy.

  • Talk about the book together. Were there any parts that were familiar to you from your own experiences? What did you learn that was new?

  • Talk to your kids about screen use and limits. How can kids enjoy digital media in balance with other activities?
