Wonderful Pre-School DS game to help with reading.

I bought this for my son and he love it - it has different games where it reads the book to them, has them record their voice and read a sentence, and guessing games with prizes (my son's favorite part)

My Reading Tutor offers some obviously very solid educational content. New readers should definitely get a boost in their skills from playing through the games and stories within. The stories themselves aren't much to speak of -- they're intended more as tools than genuine entertainment -- but they're cute. The games are well-designed, although some move at a slow pace that could frustrate more advanced readers. But for preschoolers and kindergartners who are just beginning to sound out words, the pace seems about right. And there's certainly a lot of variety, which can go a long way toward keeping kids entertained while they learn.

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.
