MOTHER EARTH'S PRESCHOOL: LEARNING BIRDS VOLUME 1 presents a case where it would have been better just to create an interactive book and leave the puzzle part out altogether. The classic "Bird Children" illustrations - various birds with children's faces - are charming, and the text is narrated in a pleasant voice-over. But before kids can get to the excerpts they have to play awkward puzzles that involve listening to three sounds and identifying which one is the sound that the bird makes. While there are some everyday sounds thrown in, often times you'll be asked to compare one bird call to another, which would be challenging for adults let alone preschool-aged children. Likely kids will be inclined to skip past the puzzles so they can get to the story elements.

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.
