Techie Mommy: A is for apple, I is for iPhone. Best iPhone Apps for Preschoolers

I am always looking for new iphone apps for my kids for our iPhone and iPod touch. One reason is to keep my kids busy when there is something important I need to get done.  Another reason is because it is the way the world is headed.   I believe that it is the new wave of the future.  There is going to be an app for everything!  Schools are already using these devices in the classroom.  Gone are the days of using CD games on the computer for the kiddos.  Now, it is all about the iPods, DS's and other such "smart" devices.  The devices that our children will use during their lives will all navigate to the touch screen.  Well, back to the subject at hand.  These are currently the best iphone apps that I have found for kids and preschoolers.
