Is It Any Good?

The tall tales of Pecos Bill are entertaining enough without augmentation, but when you blend in Robin Williams' enthusiastic telling of the story (with his inevitable bits of improv), good looking artwork, and the ability to customize the experience, it's a perfect storm -- and makes for one of the better video adaptations of a classic book in the app store. The PECOS BILL app can be enjoyed by both kids and parents, offering a good blend of education and entertainment. The price is, admittedly, higher than most, but this app comes with a fully animated movie rendition of the story, which is magical enough app that you won't regret spending the money.

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.
