This classic children's bedtime story is simple and sweet. The animations are very basic but the graphics are gorgeous. The book opens with a mandolin playing. A child's voice, sometimes halting as if also learning to read, tells the story. When tapped the hen clucks, the dog barks, the cat mews and the mouse says "squeak squeak". Sadly, switching to Read By Myself didn't disable these cute sound effects.

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.
