Good reading skills practice, but too busy for some kids.

Is It Any Good?

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

Duck Duck Moose Reading was created using Common Core standards and includes exercises that gradually increase in difficulty by level, as well as a parent page for tracking kids' progress. While Duck Duck Moose Reading is a fine app for basic letter recognition and letter sound practice for pre-readers and early readers, it could be greatly improved by calming everything down a bit, in both visuals and sounds (especially nixing the distracting background music by turning it off). This app is not the best choice for kids who are easily distracted or who need a little extra time or visual space to think about answers.

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.
