Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1 ):

Young preschoolers may be excited by the familiar illustrations from the book, and they can easily navigate through the levels counting foods and following instructions. Kids must hit the "done" button after each screen to advance to the next, which may cause little ones some frustration. You can boost the level of challenge a bit by choosing a random order of numbers rather than sequential order in the options, but there is not much to engage preschoolers for long -- even with the five levels.

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.
