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.

Stunningly beautiful app for space enthusiasts

This app is absolutely beautiful. Both of my kids--even the pre-reader--have spent hours going through it just to look at the rendered and animated images of the planets, stars, and other celestial bodies. I do wish there were a voice-over option for pre-readers and kids with reading difficulties, because the info here is really dense, but the app is so well done that I think the publisher should widen the net to include enthusiastic younger space nuts. That's the only reason it gets four stars instead of five in my book.
