Great game for young children to learn how to use touch screen

My daughter enjoys playing this app on the iPad. She can easily navigate the games controls and enjoys earning stickers while playing the games. She learned how to use the iPad touch pad quickly by playing this game, and now she can play other games and listen to children's ebooks.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The SUPER WHY! app not only uses the friendly, familiar characters from the TV series, but it replicates the same kind of "learning adventures" that kids will recognize from the show. Whether it's Alpha Pig finding his way through a maze by choosing the correct letters of the alphabet or Super Why himself zapping the correct word into a sentence from a famous fairy tale, these will be situations that the show's fans have seen before. The app does a great job of replicating the look, feel, and educational content of the TV show.

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.
