Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although kids younger than 4 can probably use this site with some simple pointing and clicking, we don't recommend having kids online who are that young. There are minimal ads featuring such products as clothing and diapers, and some smaller Google ads appear, too. The site does not have ads within the storybooks themselves, but does have them on the "front page" and "end" pages of the storybooks.
Is It Any Good?
This site would be better without the distracting animated ads. That aside, some of the storybooks are exceptionally cute, and it's fun to hear different voices reading them. A neat new feature gives kids a chance to get creative: They choose a story and submit a drawing along with their first name, and voill! -- a personalized storybook!
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.
