Between the gorgeous visual style and the excellent primary-source documents, Think Like Churchill is a terrific resource for taking an inside look at the life and experiences of one of the 20th century's most pivotal leaders. What makes it especially good for learning is the decision point and its resulting feedback. It's excellent that users must make their choice, select a reason for their choice, and then explore what Churchill really did. The detailed graph and text results make users confront deeper insights about the consequences of their selections, and the graph highlights how choices skewed along any of these five axes could lead to a dangerous outcome. Ultimately, this app is as much about learning about Churchill as it is about the nature of leadership. The only drawback is how text-heavy it is: Some kids will be daunted by the sheer amount of reading. Also, there's no audio to help kids with the reading, which would make it more accessible to all. Ultimately, thought, it's an exceptional way to engage with history and reflect on the enormous impact a single choice can make.

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.
