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.

Aligns with handwriting instruction research

The research on handwriting instruction says to have a starting point and arrows to help guide letter formation (Graham) and this app follows this premise in a fun way! I also like that kids can "replay" the letters they drew and they show up on a dotted line.
