NUMBERS WITH NEMO takes kids through counting objects, tracing numerals, pronouncing numbers, and recognizing them. The narrator talks directly to the kids, pulling them into the action. The story's vocabulary is pretty advanced (with words such as savory, plankton, and supraesophageal ganglions), and the professional-quality voice narration, singing, and excellent graphics will hold kids' interest.

There are a couple of issues with the first mini-game, in which kids tap guests to count them. Kids can tap randomly on the screen to advance and aren't required to tap on one guest for each number. Also, the first game runs pretty long and may lose kids' attention. The bubble counting wherein kids hear their voices saying the numbers is awkward, and the bubbles don't respond perfectly, which may be confusing or disappointing to kids wanting to hear themselves. Parents can turn off leveled play in the settings to open up all the mini-games at once so kids don't have to get through counting, tracing, and pronouncing all 10 numbers before unlocking the next game.

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.
