    I really like your website – now I have loads of apps to try out, thanks!

    My kids really love the Peppa Pig apps. They’ve helped with my younger daughter’s numeracy skills. I think having a recognisable character keeps them interested whilst also helping them learn under the guise of fun – they’re fantastic. Definitely worth checking out!

    Call me old fashioned, but I find teaching kids using iPads and apps a bit weird. Nevertheless this is the way things are and we got to change with the times. I wrote an article recently about Temple Run and what it can teach you about life, you might find it to your liking!
