ABCmouse.com Mt. Rushmore by Age of Learning, Inc.

Nearly 100 years ago, my own grandmother (a native to South Dakota), stood on the nose of one of the carved presidential heads while Mount Rushmore was being built. I told my child this family history and then we began reading this adorable book app together. Two cute mice star in this cartoon-style title about Mount Rushmore from the creators of ABCmouse.com (a fee-based pre-school/kindergarten website with learning games and books). Their names are "123" and "ABC" and they explore this natural wonder in a way that will captivate young readers and listeners. This app doesn't have any fancy enhancements, but it makes up for this with a fun storyline, music, and expressive Read more …

Andrew Answers by Rukus Media

This cute title, from Ruckus Media, stars a little boy who is a bit of a smart-aleck, but also wiser than the authorities questioning him. The book begins with Andrew in his classroom - and the teacher conveniently off screen, talking 'at' him about the day's lesson, the letter "N".
