ELMER'S SPECIAL DAY is a sweet story with a nice message that kids will enjoy reading. While the images themselves aren't interactive, the storybook has plenty of functionality to keep kids interested in the scenes and to help them learn to read. Kids familiar with Elmer from print books will enjoy seeing him on the screen. The three different ways to experience the book make it great for kids of a variety of ages.

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.
