WORD WALL HD provides young kids a great place to practice word recognition and word building through simple, minimal-stress games. Kids who have different ways of processing language will probably find something on this app that appeals to them since it uses a combination of learning styles. The "Bubble Words" game, in which players have to choose from letters floating in bubbles to form the word that matches the picture on the screen, is probably the most challenging game. Other games on the app either allow you to set an "easy" or "hard" level or are simple enough for young learners to enjoy even if they cannot read the words presented in the game.

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.
