Curious George and the Firefighters by i Read With is a complete reading lesson for kids, including reading along, predicting, learning vocabulary, and checking for understanding. Parents don't need an education degree to sit with kids and help them develop reading skills -- i Read With puts it right on the device. The story is engaging with George and firefighters, two classic preschooler favorites. The theater may be the most exciting feature, giving kids the chance to create their own retelling of the story by moving the characters around and recording their own voices.

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.
