uKloo is simple but both engaging as well as effective for getting kids to read. The bright scenes look like something out of an early-reader picture book, and the animations provide a fun little surprise. There's nothing slick or commercial: It feels almost wholesome, especially with the farm and farmer's market scenes. Kids can play a quick round or two to review sight words, and parents -- or kids themselves, since there's no parent gate -- can increase the challenge as needed. Since the words are always there to reference, kids can associate the word with a picture as a voice says the word. There's no wrong answer, so kids simply explore until they tap the right item. However, if kids tap the wrong item, the scene sometimes zooms in and shows only the whole picture after you tap the arrow. Though kids can reference the words whenever they want, there are no hints within the scene itself, so parents will want to make sure the challenge is set appropriately.

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.
