They have also created a new app The ChildUp Early Learning Application “iCount-to-10”  which was created to help parents and early childhood educators teach children from 1 to 5 years old to count to 10. By playing this game with an adult, any child will learn to count to 10 (one of the very first steps in arithmetic), numbers as quantities and symbols, and the basics of addition. All that while discovering 40 popular animals and their real sounds. Moreover, with the app comes the ChildUp Early Learning Method, which provides precious information on brain development, early learning and parenting expertise.

Our Review
Both Big J & Little J love the colorful cards. Of course Little J is still too young to really understand, but she loves listening to her sister say the numbers and has even started repeating a few herself! Yeah to new words. Big J also loves the app, but poor Little J is scared by the animal sounds. (She has a fear of strange noises at the moment) Mommy is hoping she out grows that soon so she too can enjoy playing with the app and learning. 

Buy it:  Each pack of cards can be purchased from the ChildUp website for $9.99
The iCount-to-10 ChildUp Early Learning App is available at the Apple Online Store.

We received one pack of Teach Your Child to Count to 10, one pack Teach Your Child to Count to 20 and a free download of The ChildUp app curtesy of ChildUp and Family Review Network. All opinions are my own (with the help of Big J & Little J) and 100% honest.
