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.

Nope

Not a great resource for kids to be educated. They are one sided on issues and the things they act are facts are completely false information. Back years ago we paid for their app but now they are pushing their beliefs instead of being a neutral for kids. Unprofessional

Boring etc.

Besides it being boring and every teacher loving it, you can clearly see their point of view in politics. Would not recommend, there are other and better ways to teach and better topics they don’t really cover.
