Is It Any Good?

Our review:

It's hard to imagine an ebook version of Dr. Seuss's classic THE LORAX being done any better than this. The artwork is beautiful in its faithfulness to the original book, and the camera pans to just the right places at just the right moments. The reading is performed masterfully by an excellent voice actor. Highlighted words make it easy for kids to follow along. And the ability to tap on any item in the pictures and find out what it's called is a wonderful added bonus for budding readers. This version of The Lorax should set the standard for what a read-along app should be.

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.
