Hugely popular characters and TV series' plots are well represented in simple, easy-to-access digital stories. Nick Jr. Books – Read Interactive eBooks for Kids has all the right pieces for making digital book reading fun and smooth for young kids. Kids can read alone or with narration, and the narration option highlights the text on the screen so kids can follow along. Graphics are high quality and pleasing. There are some interactive features, but they aren't so complex as to distract from the story. And the tips help parents and kids talk about the storyline and story themes, which enhances kids' experiences with reading. Unless kids are already fans of a particular series or character, the stories themselves are nothing special -- especially because, at $2.99 a pop, building a library can quickly become a drain on your wallet, and the stories are not of such high quality to make them worth introducing to kids who don't know the characters. However, for kids who love the shows, this app is a great bridge from TV to book.

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.
