Similar to the other Meet the Insects apps, MEET THE INSECTS: WATER & GRASS EDITION is filled with fun facts, solid content, beautiful graphics, and diverse media resources. Insects come to life at the tap of a finger, and kids will be inspired to go outside and explore these critters in real life. The built-in zooming magnifying glass is a fun and easy way for kids to observe detailed structures of the insects. It would be great to see a pause and rewind feature in the Insect Story section so kids can review the material and/or take notes, and providing videos for each insect would provide consistency for kids who will want to see the same features for each bug. Aside from these small shortcomings, the app provides every possible angle to get kids interested in insects.

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.
