Interesting visuals highlight a fun (but ad-filled) fable.

Is It Any Good?

The retelling of the widely known fable in AESOP IN RHYME: HARE AND TORTOISE is done in a fun, classic-feeling manner. And kids can read along with the narration. The optical-trick animation effect is pretty neat and interesting at first, but may not be compelling enough to keep kids riveted through the whole story. The tale is relatively short, though. The banner ads across the top of the screen are not too ostentatious and actually pretty easy to ignore, but it is possible to accidentally tap them, launching yourself into a web browser window.

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.
