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.

Operation Math is an amazingly immersive app for gaining math fluency without using boring flash cards. My child is dyslexic and challenged with memorization; but we're both motivated! I teach him "tricks," like decomposing numbers and thinking in 10s. He applies these to the training room and the missions. The rewards are well-timed and appropriate. The story is engaging - even the music is easy listening (not your normal video game sounds). As an Educational Psychologist, I recommend this app for every child. My only wish is for gender and ethnic diversity in the spy character.
