Learn to Count Money contains just enough interest to keep kids coming back for more. Graphics such as a smiley skull and crossbones, a cartoony captain with a sabre and hook, and a treasure chest full of golden coins will entertain the pirates among us. Home buttons on every page, clear-enough instructions, and very real-looking money make the whole experience quite user-friendly. Settings allow kids or parents to choose instructive options such as whether to display a target amount or a treasure chest for counting and dropping money. Also, the difficulty level is flexible (easy to very hard), adding higher denominations and amounts.

The only downsides are graphics that are a bit too busy, and vital information -- the target amount of money, for example -- can get lost. Games come in bite-size groups of five, but there are no official levels. Results likely will be of interest to parents, but kids probably won't care as much about the log-style reporting.

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.
