OH MY! I absolutley LOVE this game! I gave it to my 4 year old grandson (he is adopted) and is african american. He loves this game, and so do I. It shows great amounts of diversity! I snuck in some time on my couch and played this game. It was most delightful indeed! I recommend this book to all boys and girls of all colors and ages!

Is It Any Good?

If Dora's Cooking Club was simply a kitchen sim, it would still be a good one -- colorful and fun with great, easy controls for very young kids to handle with ease. But it's more than that -- it's also a math game. And that added value raises it from good game to great. The number challenges are woven right into the recipes, letting kids move from cooking to math seamlessly. It's a very appealing game that will draw kids in with its colorful, positive vibe (and licensed characters, of course), and will keep them interested and having fun as they practice their arithmetic.

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.
