ROUNDS: FRANKLIN FROG is a top-notch educational app that teaches kids about frogs in a fun, engaging way. It's narrated by kids, making it all the more inviting. The animation and background music are sweet and simple, and frog facts are easy to digest: for example, "I can jump the length of TEN frogs!" and "Only about five of my 2,000 eggs will become grown-up frogs." Word highlighting can be turned off, and narration can be turned off completely when kids are ready to read on their own.

Parents will appreciate how polite Franklin is -- he often says "please," "thank you," and "you're doing a great job" when he asks kids to help him by swiping the screen. And the "Rounds" concept, where characters' stories start again when they end, is a clever one.

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.
