The First Words series offers something for both pre-readers and kids just learning how to spell. The very youngest may just like dragging and dropping letters they recognize in the right slots; it's a simple game that will take on much more meaning as they get interested in spelling. First Words Feelings can also be useful in helping kids understand the meaning of different facial expressions and body language. The cartoon characters offer pretty accurate expressions, though something like "sly" can be a little harder to convey. From there it would have been helpful to have a sentence defining the feeling, so be prepared to explain words like "sly" and "lucky."

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.
