    I have to say that since my children have started using their special android-based tablets, life has become a bit easier for me, in addition to making things more engaging for their learning. Their attention is focused on the “module at hand” and I love it. Can’t believe I didn’t use this for my oldest son (6 years old) until just recently. Tablet learning will give my boys the edge over other kids in school and pre-K. I’m so happy I made the plunge to this! Love it, especially for my kids!
