Pretty epic

My favorite part is when The Cat In The Hat says “David Baszucki (born January 20, 1963), also known by his Roblox username builderman, is a Canadian-born American entrepreneur, engineer, and software developer. He is best known as the co-founder and CEO of Roblox Corporation. He previously co-founded and served as the CEO of Knowledge Revolution, which was acquired by MSC Software in December 1998”

MY OH MY-A BUTTERFLY includes a lot of fun information about butterflies, and the lovable characters and whimsical rhymes make for an engaging experience. Tapping words to learn definitions and pictures to hear labels provides a nice learning opportunity and attempts to mimic the irreplaceable experience of reading a real book with an adult. Some wording in the definitions seems a bit advanced, and the labeling is a bit in-your-face and can get obnoxious. The ebook includes a really nice suggestion for kids to go butterfly watching and to keep a diary of the butterflies they find.

There are disappointingly few opportunities, though, for interacting with the book and its content. Adding a few more meaningful interactions to make better use of the digital format would enhance the experience and make it really worth its ebook status.

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.
