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.

Very cute story

The narration here is odd because they're trying to sound spooky, but other than the pumpkin's name and the fact that the events begin on the night before Halloween, it really isn't about that at all. It's about discovering that what makes you different can be special and desirable, which is actually an uplifting and sweet message. The app is great for preschoolers and elementary age alike. You can choose to read it yourself or have it read to you. The storm, and the threats it brings to the pumpkins, might be slightly scary for ages 2-3. This is one of our favorite read-along apps from this company. Accessed via Amazon FreeTime Unlimited.
