MILLIE WAS HERE, BOOK 1: MEET MILLIE is simply a story about a darn cute puppy, presented in a unique art style that combines drawings with real-life photos and video clips of a real dog as Millie. The app presents a tongue-in-cheek look at Millie and her "superpowers," such as the ability to disappear into thin air (by crawling under a blanket), and dress up in hilarious disguises. Kids can interact with the pages through onscreen buttons and pull-tabs, and there are games to play and hidden stickers to collect, too. The story is short and sweet, but this free download serves as a great introduction to the rest of the series, which will send Millie out on more exciting adventures.

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.
