Dear Parent or Teacher,
This project is a labor of love for me. I originally developed this map puzzle game for my 3 year old daughter after I read a study in a parenting magazine about the poor geography skills typical of today's children.
My daughter has been my lil’ tester while my team & I continue to refine the app to be fun, easy-to-use and educational. After our initial iPad version of Kids Maps was so well received, I decided to figure out a way to bring the fun to the iPhone and iPod Touch. Depending on the success of this game, additional maps may follow.
I sincerely hope your children enjoy all the fun and education built into my Kids Maps U.S. Pocket Edition Puzzle Game as much as my daughter does – I hope to continue releasing more kid-friendly games, too.
If you have feedback or any technical issues, please don’t hesitate to contact me. I look forward to your input!
Thanks again for contributing to my daughter’s college fund!
