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.

Engaging app for emerging readers

My four year old LOVES this app. You have three choices: reads to you, read with help or read on your own. My daughter has picked up on how to use the app without any help and loves learning and browsing. She's not normally a train person but loves the app anyways. The stories engage her - they build on what they know, and as most of you know, kids love stories that build on a formula!
