A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Kids can tap their way through most of the app. First they choose a journal topic: Pretending, Playtime, Books, At School or When I Get Mad. Each journal prompts kids to choose drawings that finish spoken sentences such as, "At school, I like to learn about..." Journals are only three pages long, not including a cover kids can draw using electronic markers, paintbrushes, crayons and sticker. Kids can save a photo of their cover drawing for the camera roll, then save the journal to the Library. All that's missing is a date stamp for parents.

Is it any good?

Kids loved Mr. Rogers because he cared about their feelings. In this app an animated version of Daniel Striped Tiger helps kids express feelings about everyday activities such as playtime and school by making their own three-page journals from supplied word and art modules. It's easy and fun and gives kids a way to let parents know what's going on in their lives, good or bad.
