Is It Any Good?

RAIN GO AWAY ABCs functions best as an attractive flashcard app. The illustrations are pretty, and the letter/word voiceover work is enthusiastically performed. As a suggestion box for rainy-day activities, it feels lacking. You've only got 26 activities here -- one for each letter -- so seeing that some are such un-thrilling ideas as "make funny faces" or "do jumping jacks" feels unsatisfying. Others are certainly more original and more interesting, like "make an edible ant farm," but because the suggestions are only a sentence or two, some feel like they need further explanation.

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.
