Every Friday we like to present a selection of apps that are completely free with no in-app purchases that will be fun and educational for your kids, and sometimes for adults too. Today we have an activity book from NASA, a bedtime book from Sprout, Wonderopolis, Hot Wheels and more! My personal recommendation is for lingua.ly (I am a language lover at heart) but my daughter's favorite is Good Night Star.
** Please note ** Pricing and dates are correct at the time of publishing. We endeavor to include only apps that have no in-app purchases and no advertising. Only the app's developer can control when an app is free.**
