Last year, I was on the hunt for the Best iPad Apps for Preschoolers and found a ton of great resources and apps. Since then, we have found a lot more that we love so naturally I had to create another best iPad apps list! All of my best iPad apps are available in the iTunes app store. Most of these educational apps are free but, if they aren’t, they are definitely worth their price!
