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.

Wow! One of the best apps I've ever seen

The beauty of the novel effect app is the way it empowers parents to engage and inspire kids with a good ole fashion print book. I've never seen anything like it. And my daughter absolutely adores the sound effects. She's only 3 and after the first story, she wanted to read to trigger the sound effects. So cool!
