Habitat for Humanity does a good job clearly articulating its mission and showing examples of how it helps people around the world, and it's easy to get involved through the site. The games illustrate the work Habitat does, but younger kids might find them a bit challenging, and there's no way to refer back to the instructions without starting your game over. The site is mostly about introducing kids to the organization, not keeping them entertained online.

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.
