The Little Scholar™ tablet is sold by School Zone, the company known for producing educational workbooks. This tablet (suggested for children ages 3 to 7) provides users with activities based on curriculum subjects for preschoolers, kindergartners, and first graders. It comes with pre-loaded apps that address math, reading, spelling, logic, geography, and creativity. The 150 educational apps include e-Books, songs, and videos. There is nearly $400 worth of free content pre-loaded. Purchasing additional apps is optional.
A unique feature of the Little Scholar™ is the A+ Report Card app. It allows parents to track their child's progress and see how much time their child has spent on each individual topic or curriculum area. They can customize the content to the needs of their children. A password-protected parent section includes access to an app management feature, which allows parents to manage all additional downloads.
Children ages 3 to 7 will enjoy dozens of animated learning games. First-time readers can start out listening to an eBooks Start to Read!® series. As their skills progress, children can read the books on their own. Charlie & Company is a new educational video series (with live action and animation); four episodes are pre-loaded on the Little Scholar™. Charlie (a Golden Retriever) and his friend (Miss Ellie) go on educational adventures. Families can take fun on the road with 87 songs by Brian Vander Ark.
