Shalynne @ Wonderfully ChaoticEducational Kindle Apps

I got a Kindle Fire last year and I love it. It will never replace my book collection but it’s so handy for traveling, on-the-go, and getting books right away. I also love that my kids can use it as part of their schooling – we have read books on it together and there are so many different educational apps and games available for them to use. Someone asked me about apps the other day so I thought I’d write up a blog post about some of the ones we’ve found and loved.

Books are fabulous, and we certainly haven’t abandoned them, but computers can give you instant feedback and interaction that you can’t get from books. If the internet disappeared tomorrow, we would definitely miss more than email.
