PEG + CAT: THE TREE PROBLEM easily engages kids with some basic math-related reasoning. More than teaching specific math concepts, Peg + Cat: The Tree Problem aims to immerse kids in a world where math is a fun, exciting, and a totally integral part of life. Instead of presenting the typical number flash cards or equation drills, it engages kids in such a way that they don't even realize they're using mathematical reasoning. In fact, parents may want to help make the connection between math concepts and play to strengthen the potential for learning and support an association between math and the fun of the games. Many problems have multiple solutions, which encourages kids to be creative and breaks the mold of the right answer/wrong answer formula. Though some new challenges are introduced through the levels, the task remains essentially the same through all 30 games, so some kids may find it repetitive.

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.
