PETE AND THE SECRET OF FLYING reads like a modern version of old Kipling fables, the kind of stories that provided fantastical explanation for animal behavior. Here, kids will get a mythical tale about how birds learned to fly. It's a cute little story, made more enjoyable by the interactive animations. Some are very imaginative, like a scene in which you can use your finger to shield a baby bird from falling raindrops. And once he learns to fly, you can steer Pete all around the screen. You can even make him fly off one side of the screen to reappear on the other.

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.
