HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS! offers many fun ways for kids to interact with the story digitally, but it's not the strongest Dr. Seuss app in the library. The male narrator's British accent is questionable, and the illustrations don't always change with each page turn, which affects the story's pacing. It's still a great app with a lot to offer, including the original illustrations from the book.

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.
