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.

A FUN way for kids to learn Chess!

This is a really great program. It takes kids through lots of mini-games that teach them about the moves of each different chess piece -- even some strategy! I had never played Chess when my 6-year old became interested. This game taught me enough to keep up with him!
