From the time your child can talk, they love to ask questions. They want to know how things work, move, live, taste, feel and more. Sometimes the questions are easy, but sometimes they can really stump you! While it may be your least favorite game after you’ve just finished a 2 hour candy-aisle-avoiding marathon at the grocery store – kids NEED to ask questions. It’s how they learn, grow and explore their world.
Scholastic Parent & Child wants to help you connect in one of the best ways: through conversation.
About KidQ – a New Learning App from Scholastic
The KidQ app (for iPhone and Android) helps start learning conversations via fun (and often funny) questions and answers about the things that kids – and their parents – are curious about. Now, not only can you tackle classic questions like Why is the sky blue?, but even more unique ideas like Why do we say “ears” of corn? and Why do our feet stink?
Each day parents get a brand new question to start a conversation with their child(ren). You can schedule it for breakfast, the ride to school or a fun activity that pops up right before bedtime. Ask your children what they think the answer is; you might be surprised by what they say! If you don’t know the official answer, don’t worry – just click the button and read all the facts.
If your child can’t wait for the next scheduled question, you can also select “New Q” to get another question and start another conversation right away. You can keep the fun and learning going as long as you like. It’s a great way to pass the time when you’re waiting at the doctor’s office, sitting at the bus stop or just spending time on the couch after a long day.
With KidQ – you never know what your family will learn next!
