Is It Any Good?

With nine stories in one app, TALKING TO TODDLERS is a pretty good deal. Focusing on everyday objects and basic activities, it will remind you of the way you sit down with kids to read Richard Scarry books like Cars and Trucks and Things That Go; there's a lot of pointing and chatting as you go. The "let's talk" section is good for parents who may forget that toddlers like repetition and descriptions of simple tasks and observances -- the teacher who wrote Talking to Toddlers sure remembers.

Impatient kids who like lots of things to tap on (and are the sort to take over your devices instead of sitting next to you to enjoy them) will have a harder time getting into this one. And parents who walk away while their child is working on the puzzle or the matching game will notice they get stuck with an annoying dialogue box at the end that tries to sell the app to your friends so they can try to beat your fastest time -- a concept toddlers probably won't grasp anyway.

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.
