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.

My 5 year old does multiplication because of MathTango!

It's the best game he's found on his Amazon tablet and it's amazing! At first it took a lot of coaching and reading, but now he knows what most of the things day just by pattern recognition, and at 5 he's able to do addition, subtraction and multiplication, mostly because he loves the game and wants to be able to play more of it without help. We used dice to teach him basics of addition, subtraction and multiplication, then I created him a times table and now he knows factors of 0,1,2,3,5 and 10 and he's leaning everything in between very quickly, it's awesome!
