Do you worry about your kids hearing the wrong kind of news? Or that they won’t understand it?
When I was asked to review this new App, I was excited. Monkey Man loves to watch the news, and keep up on what is going on. The News-O-Matic App from Press4Kids helps keep the kids up to date, but in a kid friendly way. They bring current events to them and how they affect them in a age-appropriate way.
Press4Kids is a group of journalist, educators, and entrepreneurs. It was started in 2012 and works hard to inform children about current news and world events.
My kids were super excited to read “their” newspaper everyday to see what was going on around the world. They also liked to tell me about it. This was absolutely a highlight to their day!
This App is very easy to use, and your kids really learn a lot! Added bonus they get to learn it all without the added extra violence.
You can purchase this App on iTunes for your iPad or iPad Mini. It is a bit steep in price… $49.99 for the year subscription, $6.99 a month, or $1.99 a week.
However, being a homeschooling mom. . . I think I could justify this for my kids for a year. Really great information.
