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.

I purchased this app based on commonsensemedia's review and was very disappointed. Either the reviewer is not from the US or he did not thoroughly examine the app. Under the "Letter Sounds" section, some of the vowel sounds are incorrect and, therefore, that section is unusable. The other main section is the "I Spy" section. The child is to choose from an assortment of images to find one that starts with different letters. The image for N is a narwhal (I had no idea what it was - it kind of looks like a swordfish). The image for the letter O is an okapi. There are multiple other examples of image/letter combinations that are extremely confusing. The app was clearly not created by someone fluent in American English.
