HOW TO DRAW can be a real confidence builder for budding artists of all ages. The adorable drawings the app teaches users to sketch look like they may be too complicated for younger kids to learn, but the bit-by-bit instructions make these drawing lessons accessible to kids as young as kindergarten -- maybe even younger, if your kid has a natural affinity for drawing. What fun for a young child to send a completed drawing via email (with a parent's help, of course) to a relative or teacher and say, "I drew that space shuttle!" And have it really look like a space shuttle. Highly recommended.

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.
