quickly gets tough

For younger kids the levels of increasing difficulty go by pretty fast. Soon after starting the counting games my 4yo was getting frustrated because she couldn't do them any more (like counting backwards by twos from 53). It will probably be better in a few months or a year.

The activities in Moose Math are aligned to the Common Core State Standards for kindergarten math and engage kids with activities tied loosely together by a story. Kids are empowered by the choices they have in what to add to their towns. The mini-games get them thinking mathematically, though some of the cute characters, namely the dust bunnies, seem an odd fit. Kids are unlikely to give that a second thought, though. Parental controls on the screen keep kids out of the assessment reports and other apps. Some of the hints and feedback could be more helpful, but most are well-done. Overall Moose Math is a fun way for kids to get some practice with early math skills.

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.
