Even Monsters Get Sick is a well-done book app. The narration is in a child's voice, and the pictures are just right. More importantly, the interactive features enhance the story rather than distract from it. For example, there are a couple of puzzles that are inserted within the story, but they forward the plot -- like when they are trying to get home, the puzzle is to lead the characters through a maze home. While the interactive features do not focus on building vocabulary or reading skills, they generally have a functional purpose (like scrolling the page to make the wagon keep moving), keeping the focus on the story.

Even Monsters Get Sick is a great example of taking an engaging story with the right mix of humor and lesson and combining it with interactive features to elevate the reading experience.

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.
