Complex plot is tricky for a picture book; games are fun.

It's best to look at How To Train Your Dragon 2 (Official Storybook App) in two parts: the story and the game. The games are excellent, giving kids options to choose their level of challenge, to pick their racing dragon, to increase the challenge, and to change the scenes as kids play. The story, though, is more iffy, because the big ideas and conflicts involved can't be fully developed in the short format of the storybook app. Kids who already know the movie would appreciate the book more. The coloring pages are comparable to other coloring apps but are probably out of sync for the age of kids who'd be interested in the story and games. Younger siblings may be drawn to the coloring pages whereas older kids would enjoy the games more.

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.
