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.

A great app for those beginning to explore educational media for kids

We're only now starting to ease up on letting our son have access to TV, apps, etc. This is one of the first apps we've downloaded for him, so we're not the most critical consumers yet. Still... Our son loves this app. The connect-the-dot-numbers is a bit difficult for him (it requires very developed fine motor skills). The app seems to do a nice job congratulating correct answers without going overboard with praise, while giving simple feedback about incorrect answers. The pace between sections is fast. Sometimes I think it's too fast, a bit unrelenting. Other times it seems to be just right, encouraging him to keep going if he starts to get discouraged.
