    "This education app for preschoolers is just what I've been looking for. Most of us would prefer not to hand a screen to our little ones, but when it's educational as well as fun I see no problem at all. The monkey is the perfect animal choice for this theme and for drawing in the kids. There are seven different games involved which is awesome."
