A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn new vocabulary and build their reading skills in Starfall All About Me. Through word associations and sentence completion tasks, kids learn new words about the body, items in the home, and other familiar objects. With the audio options, kids can choose to hear the whole sentence or individual words, allowing them to build reading skills at their own pace. Furthermore, sentence completion and word matching activities help kids attend to print concepts such as sentence structure and word length. Starfall All About Me is a thoughtful app with a clear focus on literacy.
Ease of Play
The activities are very simple and easy to navigate, requiring mostly tapping and drag and drop.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Starfall All About Me teaches vocabulary and reading skills in an engaging, kid-friendly way. Kids who have spent time on the Starfall website will recognize the activity from the "It's Fun to Read" section of the site. The activities take place in familiar settings, such as at home or in the park, and introduce kids to words about the body, household objects, and more. Kids can personalize the experience by creating their own avatars and answering questions about themselves. Starfall All About Me engages preschoolers in age-appropriate learning activities with no distractions.
Is It Any Good?
Starfall All About Me is a great app for emerging readers. Though not the sleekest of apps, the interactive features do a good job of enhancing and personalizing kids' learning. Kids can choose to tap on individual words to hear them said aloud by the kid-friendly narrator. Parents can turn the auto-read on or off, giving new readers extra support or allowing kids to read the sentences on their own.
What makes it relatable for kids is that the learning activities are all about things familiar to them. It even takes a basic activity like designing the avatar and uses it as an opportunity to teach about facial features. Starfall All About Me is a great combination of curriculum-based learning with relevant and engaging activities.
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.
