Danny the Dragon Meets Jimmy is one of the first apps for kids to take the needs of deaf users in mind. The ASL interpretation of the book is well done, with plenty of expression on the interpreter's face relaying the impact of the author's words. It is, however, much less interactive than other children's storybook apps, which is a wasted opportunity. And often the entire page's dialogue isn't
shown at once, so kids choosing to read without narration may inadvertently skip parts of the
story by finger swiping between pages instead of using the arrow keys on screen.

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.
