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.

A lot or a little?

Is it any good?

Where is the little hand? What's the big hand on? Learning how to tell time can frustrate both kids and parents. Of the several iPhone apps that teach the skill, this one's best because it speaks the time aloud. Three clock face styles are shown and the time is spoken in a child's voice. When the correct clock face is tapped, it gets a big check mark and a new screen displays both the clock face and the digital time. At any time kids can tap an audio button to hear the time spoken.
