ONCEAPPON – A GOOD NIGHT STORY MAKER FOR KIDS is a fun and empowering way for kids to create their own storybooks -- at first. Designing the avatars, and then using them in the stories, is a clever way to engage kids in the process. The graphics are bright and colorful, and several of them are interactive on each story page. Although there are many customizable options, the overall plot is the same no matter which options kids choose. Some more variety and a bit of basic instruction about story elements could keep kids interested for longer. Allowing kids to combine the elements into a story of their own invention also would give it a longer shelf life.

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.
