Marvel’s Hero Tales is an app by Kuato Games that is available to download in the App Store. “An educational app in disguise,” Marvel’s Hero Tales helps kids ages six to 11 build their vocabulary skills through the power of storytelling. Using word cards featuring different images, young learners will “build sentences that affect the storylines” starring heroes like Spider-Man, Ms. Marvel, the Hulk, and more!

If one of your school-age kids is a Marvel fan, these are great ways to supplement their regular lessons with Marvel characters and stories – putting them in the middle of the Marvel Universe as they sharpen the skills they need to be the heroes of the future!
