Water Life: Where Rivers Meet the Sea manages to accomplish the difficult task of teaching an arguably stale subject in a dynamic and fun way. The storyline is endearing and motivates players to continue on with the game, and the varied puzzles and mini-games keep every section new and interesting. By the end of this short game, players will have a great deal of understanding for how reckless human activity can damage the environment, and why it is essential to keep the environment intact. It definitely accomplishes the task of proving that learning can be fun, and that this subject is relevant to everyone -- even children.

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.
