Lovable bear always delights, but more interactivity needed.

Is It Any Good?

It's hard to argue that Paddington Bear isn't a lovable character whether in a paper book or an electronic version. But at the $5.99 price (at the time of this review), many parents and most kids are likely to expect more interactivity and options than they'll find with the PADDINGTON BEAR app. The story is also a bit long for younger listeners, and kids who are old enough to be readers will need a significant command of language to be able to read and record the entire story themselves. As a result, there may not be one particular age group that will find this book ideal.

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.
