These adorable farm friends model compassion through wordless stories to help kids develop social-emotional skills and understand their own feelings better. There are no instructions, but prompts on-screen coax kids to tap certain places. Some activities have a definite end and then return to the home screen. Others continue endlessly, and kids will have to decide when they're finished or want to move on. Some kids may be a bit confused about what they can do or how much control they have over situations; ultimately, they can only tap until the narrative unfolds, which may not feel like enough to slightly older kids. In future updates it would add appeal and depth to have levels appropriate to different ages with varying levels of language and control. Also, being able to turn off the music would be nice. Though the messages are positive and can stand on their own, parents may find it helpful to play alongside kids to talk more about what the animals are feeling: There's a parent guide with possible questions to ask.

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.
