What reviewers at iHeartThisApp liked ...
"The layout of the menu and activities is simple and intuitive. Simple icons are used like the caterpillar, note, butterfly, home, left, and right buttons to navigate through the app. Most sections also contain instructions so as to make it easier to use.
The visuals and the audio of the app support each other well. The illustrations and animation suit the original song while the clear voice of the narrator support the activities and science section well.
The app is well designed with learning at the forefront. The three sections all work well together to explain metamorphosis by using music and science. Children will also be given an introductory lesson into music and possibly unlock their creative potential.
The app contains no ads, in-app purchases, or links to social media sites, which makes this app a very kid-friendly app that parents can feel at ease leaving with their children."

In Tony Fraction's Pizza Shop, you have five minutes to sell as many pizzas as possible using your equivalent fractions skills. Be careful though. You customers expect you to fulfill their strange fractional orders. See below for an example:
Step 1.) Read the customer order. A sample customer order might read “I’ll have a large pizza, 1/2 pepperoni, 2/5 mushrooms and 1/10 bacon”
Step 2.) Select pizza size. In this case, select “large”. This will cause the denominator to change to 10, as a large pizza has ten slices.
Step 3 and 4.) Select toppings. First, click on pepperoni and apply to half of the pizza (5 slices). Next, click on mushrooms and apply it to 2/5 of the pizza (4 slices). Finally, click on bacon and apply it to 1/10 of the pizza (1 slice). NOTE – if you make a mistake, select a different pizza size and then re-select the original pizza size to get a new pizza.
Step 5) Click on “send”. If you are correct, you will make a sale. Incorrect pizzas will cost you! Enjoy the game!

Numbers between 1-100
Numbers between tens
When you choose a course, you will see a number to look for. For example, if you choose the addition course, you might see + 6. This means that you must ski between all flags that show a + 6 relationship. If the flags are numbered 2 and 8, you would ski through them. If they are numbered 5 and 10, you would ski around them.
Be careful, you will be penalized for skiing through the wrong flags and skiing around the correct flags. Watch out for those pesky squirrels, bears, penguins, and rocks that you must ski around to avoid penalties. To earn a gold medal, you have to be fast and nimble.
