"Reading fiction helps scientists to see the bigger picture and be reminded of the complex richness of human experience.

Brain Pop Junior App
Loving this app for K-grade 3. Brain Pop Junior covers six subjects. We began with the free app at Amazon, and liked it so much that we paid for full access, about $9.45 per month. I stepped away from my frugal ways(find it free) for this one. The quality w...
