Good book but not enough for an app

"I Just Forgot" is a very good book but must use more animations and interaction like touchybooks Android idea does.

Is It Any Good?

I JUST FORGOT is an interactive storybook with the same tone as other Little Critter books and gameplay that is similar to other book apps from publisher Oceanhouse Media. The gameplay is easy to understand, and the story pages are well done, with interactive components on each page and sound effects for objects on the screen. The included game of finding all the mice and spiders in the story adds fun.

However, Little Critter isn't the best role model for child behavior: He doesn't do his chores, sometimes because he doesn't remember, and sometimes because he just decides not to; he disobeys house rules; and he makes rude faces to his mother. His behavior and the apparent lack of consequences could make for a good discussion topic for families.

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.
