Great conversation starter

I love this app because it has provided me with great conversation topics about our culture with my daughter. I have been able to talk to her about Picasso, Frida, and other artists, as well as our Latino music. And it seems to work wonders to get her interested in knowing more - she asked to eat "Arroz con Leche" which we never usually have at home. Obviously, I made it for her. Anyway, if you are looking for an app that makes being Latino fun, this is the best one out there in my opinion. Hope it helps!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Preschoolers will find it fun to interact with lovable animal characters as they practice Spanish and are immersed in Latin American culture, but it may have a short shelf life. For the most part, the intuitive design and simple controls make it easy for little ones to use. Kids may initially need a bit of guidance scrolling through to navigate the home screen, clicking on icons and arrows to find their way to a section and then back to the home screen. Kids get minimal support as they play, so when playing a game they'll have to keep trying if they don't initially get it right. However, the nonverbal cues, such as the characters' reaction to incorrect choices in some of games, will quickly break through the language barrier to help kids understand what they need to do to move on and master the game. While the 11 sections are fun, they're also pretty simple, so their appeal may be short-lived once kids have mastered them. Having even more nonverbal cues, praise for correct answers, and simpler ways to navigate between activities would enhance the experience.

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.
