Especially for kids who are interested in comics, Big Nate: Comix By U! will provide many sessions of fun. Many of the pre-designed backgrounds are related to school or outdoors with friends and include similar settings to the Big Nate books, so kids can often use their real-life experiences in the creation of their own versions of the Big Nate comic strips, providing an outlet for personal storytelling, identifying emotions, humor, and creativity. Kids who cannot yet spell or read well may be frustrated with this app, unless assisted by a parent. For Big Nate fans, this app is sure to inspire and entertain.

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.
