Great fun and totally family friendly

My kids love this app. It's great fun and totally family friendly. We love that you can either have the story read to you (for the pre readers) or turn off the sound and read it yourself. We can't wait for more treasure Kai adventures.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

TREASURE KAI highlights sections of text as they're read aloud rather than individual words, and the in-game voice-overs can be turned off if parents would prefer to read to their kids or have them read by themselves. While the app might not be as focused on honing kids' reading skills as other interactive books, it's sure to entertain and engage readers thanks to fun cartoony scenes with lively animations, enthusiastic voice acting, and plenty of objects to tap on and investigate.

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.
