Little Digits is an amazing app for preschoolers who are just learning the basics of counting, adding, and subtracting. This app combines a natural childhood inclination -- counting on fingers -- with mobile technology to help kids learn. As kids count and tap on the screen with each finger and the app responds with the corresponding number, their own counting is reinforced by the cute monster, animal, or alien numbers that appear. The app's layout is very simple, with just three choices of activities and a tutorial. It's also a nice touch that parents can record their voice or their kid's voice saying each number, if desired. An all-around excellent early math app.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
