This lovely and very funny adaptation of BLUE HAT, GREEN HAT takes an already great classic of silly kid-lit and makes it better. The book introduces kids to a quartet of animals who don different colored articles of clothing on each page -- but the goofy turkey never seems to get it right. The repeated "Oops" at the end of every page is a great way to get toddlers involved in the story. The app adds humorous "oops" animations that turn the turkey into an even sillier character (though it also adds a wardrobe scene in which kids can dress the turkey properly if they want and give it a little class). This app gets the tone and spirit of the Sandra Boynton book absolutely right.

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.
