Good tracing practice if kids can work around the kinks.

If you're looking for something pretty straightforward for tracing practice, PRE-K LETTERS AND NUMBERS is it, as long as kids do a little troubleshooting in the beginning. It can be frustrating when a rogue pinkie knuckle or stray fingers touch the screen because it immediately registers as an error. And there are no extra hints, directional arrows, or tracing examples given when the errors continue. You're allowed to skip to the next one, but it's sure to show up on the Report Card feature.

It's great that this app lets you register more than one kid for a Report Card, but with all the percentages and stats and those nagging comparisons between your 4-year-old and others it seems like a little much for the age. The stat phobic can skip down to the "Problem Spots," however, make a mental note, and continue to practice whenever the mood strikes, on the back of grocery lists, or in chalk next to the sidewalk hopscotch.

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.
