Apps: Summer Favorites

As promised, here are some of my new favorite apps that tie in nicely with our summer reading program this year. I have another list of iOS favorites you might want to check out here. You should also check out Little eLit Pinterest app boards or Digital Storytime for more ideas. To find out how I evaluate apps and new media for use with kids, read more about my criteria.
