Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

No one can beat Dr. Seuss for inventive rhyming, but the visuals are just close-ups of his original illustrations; this approach is perfect for young kids whose media exposure is limited. The slow pace follows the rhythm of being read to and could encourage them to pick up the books on their own. For more sophisticated preschoolers, the limited visuals here could mean attention spans won't hold up.

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.
