AURACLE - HURRAY FOR PRE-K! offers 2- to 4-year-olds a sneak peek inside a preschool classroom. It does so in a way that should get kids energized about going, and at the same time alleviate any fears they may have. It shows readers that they will meet new friends, learn new things, and get to partake in exciting activities like painting and building with blocks. Certain words are repeated over and over for emphasis. Interactivity includes personalization options, and kid's parents can record their own narration. The app has a very specific target audience, but for those kids, Hurray for Pre-K! can serve as a useful tool for introducing the concept of school.

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.
