Is It Any Good?

The Sesame Street crew is well known for delivering complex messages in clear, engaging, and accessible ways and this app is no different. Songs, stories, and activities introduce new words, ways to recognize and talk about feelings, and strategies for navigating routines and interactions with others. Audio directions are clear, and activities are simple enough for young kids to follow. There's also some good feedback when kids makes a choice that doesn't quite fit. That said, there's room for so much more. For example, two out of four activities in each theme are songs or videos, which are great but also totally passive experience for kids. The stories that introduce each theme shine as the best activity type. They're engaging, interactive, and highly relevant to young kids' lives. Learn with Sesame Street would be a lot stronger if it had more of that kind of content. Though it's probably not worth the subscription price on its own, as part of a bundle with HOMER Learn and Grow, Learn with Sesame Street is a nice addition for young kids that's worth checking out.

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.
