*Parents' Choice Silver Award Winner!*

PBS’ first app designed specifically for parents, PBS Parents Play & Learn provides more than a dozen games parents can play with their kids, each themed around a familiar location – including the new “In the Garden” game, plus the grocery store, a restaurant, the kitchen, and many more.

The bilingual (English/Spanish) PBS Parents Play & Learn App makes it easy for parents to seize upon those daily “teachable moments” through theme-based interactive games and simple hands-on activities that connect math and literacy skills to everyday experiences.

The app is designed to build on a child’s natural curiosity about his or her everyday world and to encourage dialogue between kids and parents. Each game comes with a parent note that provides information about the math and literacy skills woven into the game and suggestions for effective ways to interact with a child while playing the game to maximize the learning experience.

- 13 interactive games that automatically adjust to a child’s level
- A variety of proven methods used to build early math and literacy skills
- Completely bilingual (English/Spanish)

Umm, this game just doesn't start. I can't seem to open up any of the games or categories outside the mail box or more games options. Please fix so I can rate this game properly. PBS rocks otherwise.

Waste of time I just downloaded it on my Samsung Galaxy 6 and nothing worked. I wasted my time downloading just to uninstall it. Very disappointed.

3 year old loves it! A lot of variety This game has surpassed Daniel Tiger in popularity. There's a lot of options here for pre-readers, and many audio cues and action sound effects. Lots of educational games to choose from.
