The features included -- feedback from parents, the opportunity to publish, the ability to customize with pictures and speech bubbles -- make writing fun for kids, which is exactly what encourages kids to write. The more they write, the better they write; the more they read, the better they read. WriteReader Pro ties writing and reading together, letting kids write original texts, read other's writing, and reread their own writing, mirrored by the correctly spelled and assembled adult version. The keyboard is customizable, too, letting kids see the letters in caps or lowercase and hear audio of letter names or letter sounds as they type. Best of all, though, are the ideas for parents included on the website.

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.
