Preschoolers will find it fun to interact with Juana and her farm friends as they learn basic skills and practice Spanish. The intuitive design and simple controls make it easy for little ones to use: There are no confusing menus or buttons, and each round leads smoothly to the next for continuous play. Kids get minimal support as they play, so they'll have to keep trying if they don't know the right answer. However, many nonverbal cues, such as Juana's reaction to correct and incorrect choices will quickly break through the language barrier to show kids what they need to do to move on and master the game. While the five games -- counting animals, sorting by color, matching, one-to-one correspondence, and rewards -- are fun, they're also pretty simple, so their appeal may be short-lived once kids have mastered them. Having even more nonverbal cues, being able to toggle between languages, more game variety, and the ability to navigate between activities would enhance the experience.

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.
