This game-based approach is a clever way to capture kids' attention while building foundational reading skills. Poio by Kahoot! Learn to Read does a nice job of combining solid learning content with a fun adventure. For that reason, it may be particularly appealing for kids who are struggling with learning how to read. There are purposefully no instructions for what kids are supposed to do, which helps maintain the gaming feel. But, some kids may feel a bit lost or confused -- at least at first. As they continue playing, kids should manage to figure out their role. The journey to unlock the whole storybook is a long one, and though the content builds as kids go further, the tasks stay more or less the same. It's possible that kids will lose interest at some point. Parents can help by engaging with their kids when they see interest fading. Despite these small downsides, Poio by Kahoot! Learn to Read is a great option for bringing some extra fun to learning the basic mechanics of reading.

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.
