Based on the natural beauty of coral reefs that's quickly vanishing, this app is a work of art for kids. Coral Reef by Tinybop uses visuals, sounds, actions, and labels to help kids learn about many aspects of reef life -- from the tiny plants and particles that make up the base of reef ecosystems to large reef sharks and all sizes of animals in between. Kids will likely love hearing the clicking sounds made by shrimp, helping little crabs, and seeing how the sun interacts with the world under the waves. Some kids may not love seeing how a shark catches its prey and how a shark carcass decomposes, but the app definitely shows it like it happens in the wild world under the sea. By exploring the reef on Coral Reefs by Tinybop, perhaps more kids will grow up with a desire to preserve the real ones.

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.
