Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

While nothing can replace parents reading to kids, provides a valuable supplemental reading experience that gives kids the chance to explore books independently and savor them at their own pace and reading level. Pre- and early readers will enjoy following along as spoken words are highlighted. More experienced readers who find the narration too slow can turn it off and read the text themselves and if they get stuck, they can just click on a word to hear it read out loud.

The amount of content is a little anemic to truly justify the $40 annual subscription (this is for home use; academic prices vary). Currently, 41 books are available, with a new one added each month. The site plans to add about 70 more, along with articles for parents, written by child development experts.

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.
