Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3):

Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat Color & Create! is a fun coloring app that includes cool special effects not seen in other apps of this genre. For example, there's the confetti machine that operates a bit like glitter; kids swipe their finger across the screen, and the confetti machine blows a bunch of confetti onto the swiped area.

With all this fun, however, the science content is easy to miss. There are audio instructions for using the different coloring tools, but there is no reading of the text on each page. Parents may want to scroll through the finished colorings and read them with their kids like a book to boost the learning in this fun, creative app.

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.
