Rude app just trying to show how "good" racism is!

Is It Any Good?

It's a real pleasure to watch the quilt-like, softly colored illustrations move by with the lyrics to the "12 Days of Christmas" on this holiday app. The bite-size math lesson related to counting down from 12 to 1 that's craftily embedded as part of the song itself is educational in a very gentle sort of way. Surprisingly, the most fun part of THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS - POLK STREET PRESS SINGALONG app for some kids seems to be the video sing-along that they can record of themselves in the corner of the screen as the illustrations and song continues. From silly to serious, these videos can be sent via email or posted on Facebook to get your family friends in the holiday spirit. A very sweet app with some learning on the side.

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.
