Makes you think
Not your normal boring textbook approach. Instead this eBook encourages students to use their imaginations. Very visual, and nice sound effects. I'm showing it to my students in class and they respond it. Great new history app.
Choose Your Own Adventure, but better than the 80s!
I kept thinking I wish they had this type of animated history format when I was growing up. I would have paid more attention in school!
Great stories but sometimes too much features
I really like the story about the character, Agent 355 whos very brave during the Revolution. But I wish the story was longer, actually
