Curious kids will love exploring all things weather. The graphics and wording are kid-friendly and mostly easy to understand yet still very informative. The app plays like an interactive museum exhibit wherein kids get to increase or decrease the force of the wind or actually rotate the earth to simulate a day. As kids complete activities, they earn a star, and the beauty of those stars is that kids aren't rewarded with points or stickers but with ideas for activities they can do outside, such as freezing soap bubbles or making their own rainbows. Though the amount of features is fairly extensive, a few more interactive elements on each page might keep kids hooked even longer, and the interactive elements that do exist aren't always totally clear. Also, in the description of the climate zones, the child's voice says "Temperature zones" instead of "Temperate zones," which might confuse some kids.

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.
