This interactive edition of THE POKY LITTLE PUPPY works as both a wonderful read-along (with crisp, enthusiastic narration well-suited to a preschool audience) and as a fun educational game app. Each page poses challenges like, "Touch the Poky Little Puppy's tail," "Touch three white flowers," or "Touch the gray puppy." In doing so, kids are playing much more than just a scavenger hunt -- they're testing their counting skills, color recognition, and knowledge of body parts. The sticker book section also makes a great reward system.

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.
