The ABBY MONKEY - FIRST WORDS FOR PRESCHOOL: ANIMALS HD BY 22 LEARN developers may not know how to put together a succinct app name, but when it comes to fun ways to educate children, the team knows what it's doing. First Words is a good head start for children who know their ABCs
and are curious about what to do with them, showing them how to spell
more than 80 animal names and rewarding them with cute animations. The matching puzzle is aimed at slightly older players. As
with other entries in the series, parents can adjust the difficulty of any part of the app to
give it longevity. Unfortunately, the promotional links at the app's start-up page are likely to frustrate preschoolers who tap them and end up in the iTunes store; instructing them to tap "start" instead of the colorful boxes should help.

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.
