PENGUIN'S FAMILY is a quietly educational, beautifully illustrated storybook app. It's too bad that there's not more interactivity because kids these days -- even the youngest app users -- expect it, which may cause some kids to undeservedly label this worthwhile story as boring. There's really no interactivity other than page turning on two of the three modes and the vocabulary words zooming up and being re-spoken when the pictures are touched.

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.
