Is It Any Good?

Our review:

DR. SEUSS'S ABC is faithfully adapted in this ebook app, which is perfectly suited to preschoolers playing around with Mom or Dad's iphone. Kids can swipe and point with zero effort, enabling them to enjoy the app without any grown-up help. Each word is highlighted as it is read, making it easy to follow along. And the reading is performed by a great actress who gives her all to the nonsense syllables of Dr. Seuss.

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.
