The pre-written stories in KERPOOF TELL A STORY: DINO EDITION are very sweet and have some positive messages about friendship and self-acceptance. In view mode, kids can tap interactive items. In edit mode, they can edit stories (for example, Iggy the Dinosaur might become Izzy the Dinosaur). Kids can create their own voiceovers, and the app can auto-correct spelling in written text.

The dinosaur characters, as well as the other visuals and the starter stories, seem to be geared toward pre-readers. However, overall, the app is more suited toward kids who can read. There's no pre-recorded audio in the storybook portion, except background sounds and dinosaur growls. Many pre-readers will need adult assistance, although some early readers may feel the app is too young for them. Also, prop choices are limited. But for dinosaur enthusiasts at just the right age and reading level, this app will be a treat, and kids will want to create stories with it time and time again.

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.
