Nice graphics, great music, and silly animal tricks are the highlights in this quick ebook with a somewhat abstract and old-school learning goal. The animal tricks and accompanying music, though short, will make little kids giggle. Parents playing along will get a kick out of the musical superstar impersonations, such as Amy (Winehouse) the Dog or Freddie (Mercury) the giraffe. It may frustrate some kids that it's not always obvious where they should tap to make something happen, though it shouldn’t take long for them to figure things out. Even though the narrator asks kids whether they finish all the food on their plates, kids will need help applying the lesson in real life if parents want them to; however, the message doesn't fit for every family, and it seems a bit outdated in terms of what we know about healthy eating practices.

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.
