For kids who are just learning to read and therefore watching the words highlight, it's helpful that the animation is separate and not distracting. But for younger kids who aren't yet reading, the page may seem stagnant until they start pushing buttons. Even then, the animations are minimal.

Parents should consider whether they want to invite all of these characters into their home. Initial add-on cartridges are $12.99 each. TeleStory does provide scaffolding to an emerging reader when a parent or caregiver isn't available. It's also helpful in families where English isn't the primary language spoken at home.

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.
