Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Story of Thor with Scotty & Lulu is a colorful book app for young children that mixes old nursery rhyme characters with Thor, a loud dinosaur, to teach kids a lesson about getting along with others. Kids can listen to a narrator read the story, read it to themselves, or hear it in a catchy tune version. Even though the title mentions "Scotty & Lulu," the two human characters aren't a significant part of the story.
Is It Any Good?
The neat part about THE STORY OF THOR WITH SCOTTY & LULU is the three different methods in which the book's story is told, especially the snappy song. All three ways tell the tale of how Thor learned to tame his roar and become a more considerate member of his community. After many rhymes and guest appearances by nursery rhyme characters, Thor does tame his roar. This is a basic storybook; in other words, you won't find many bells and whistles here. While the story is thematically strong, interactivity would make this app shine. Kids are likely to tap on pages expecting to get some kind of reaction from the book that's just not there.
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.
