LANGUAGEBUILDERDELUXE is a solid learning tool for kids who need to improve receptive and expressive language skills. The audio and visual prompts along with the three levels of hints give kids appropriate support as they learn to build and produce sentences. In addition, the ability to playback and re-record sentences helps kids reflect on and revise their language.

The photographs are high quality and depict a range of settings and themes appropriate for young kids. Unfortunately, the photos lack diversity -- nearly all of the kids and adults in the photos are white. And for the price, it would be nice if the app provided parents with some guidance to help kids get the most out of this app. A parent/teacher center with suggestions for supporting language development and ideas for extension activities would be a nice addition.

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.
