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.

Absolutely amazing app that had my 5 year old glued to the math puzzles

This app is very well designed, and, very importantly by education professionals. It is engaging and has my child excited about doing the math problems. My 5 year old had no problem with any of the content counting adding and subtracting numbers less than 10 which allowed several hours of play (~ 4 hours or so). The app teaches helping others (e.g. help this character count the numbers) . My son has now run into more difficult problems , such as adding subtracting two digit numbers, and will need more math education before he can continue, but he enjoyed the numbers less than 10 content greatly, and without parent involvement. Also it is great that everything has audio (not just text which requires reading) , my son can read, but it would be tiring to read and play at the same time for him, as we've learned with many other apps.
