Kids are wrapping up the school year, and final exams are under way. What will your kids do over the long, hot summer vacation ahead? Play on the computer, watch TV, enjoy electronic games? That's fine for a while, but as teachers will advise, 2 months of vacation is too long to go without some form of learning activities. Why not offer your kids a lot of fun with some great, educational facts included so that they don't even realize it! This is when the exciting GoKids Apps: Save Paris! comes to mind!

Here's a travel and language app that will help children develop a love of France and its customs. GoKids Apps: Save Paris! is an enjoyable way to learn basic French and grab a few facts about this beautiful country and its people. I'm pretty sure that what the children learn while playing will be used in school later during one of their many history or geography classes. In this outer space, interactive game, as a member of the Earth Defense Agency, you must defeat the Gloop aliens during 10 missions while you collect facts. Oh yes, and your knowledge is put to the test after learning these interesting facts! Take part in fun arcade games, along with matching pairs concerning all things French! So what are some of the unique and educational features about GoKids Apps: Save Paris?

- 10 different French secret agent missions, each one with its own series of memory pair matching and “whack a Mole” arcade style games.
- French vocabulary related to greetings, travel, colors, numbers, food
- Key facts about France
- Mini Travel Guide with pictures and information of the most important places in Paris
- Multiplayer setting – Enter up to 4 players so the whole family can play.

Every time you set out on a mission, you are supplied with a file of French information as you are playing the part of a French agent determined to defeat the Gloops (those puddly green creatures)! As you progress through the game, you will be using this important data (geography, historical landmarks, vocabulary, culture, food, and people) on your mission. The information is set out in flashcard style with an image and description. Play a matching memory game based on these flashcards. Beware that if you answer incorrectly, your Gloop meter bar will be quickly filled so that you will have to start all over again! However, if you're successful, you are rewarded with playing Whack A Gloop game.

This innovative, travel game app struck a chord with me because I truly feel that children should be learning several languages while young. Now is the time to blend languages, learn about other nations and cultures, and do it in a way that makes a child desire more. Whether you are a teacher, parent or both, you can not help but appreciate the find blend of subjects done in an engaging way to playfully increase your child's knowledge. I was impressed with the tidbits of French culture which are at a great learning level for 8-12 year old kids. So many wonderful items to be consumed such as the location and make-up of France in Mission 1, French customs in Mission 5, numbers and colors in French in Mission 8 and much more along the way. The clever mix of subjects including French, history and geography makes this a unique winner, all-round educational and cultural app. Parents, join in the fun and immerse yourself in France, along with your child!
