Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (5 ):

The rhyming activity at "Orson's Farm" fits the bill for younger kids; it's not hard and the pictures are sweet. In contrast, some of the games offered in "Star Sleeper" (in which the world's laziest feline provides lots of information on the importance of sleep) are somewhat sleep-inducing themselves.

A favorite feature is "Word Wrestling" in the "Reading Ring." Drag and drop comic strip panels into the correct order and then answer questions about what's going on. It's a great way to learn about sequencing ideas and practice reading comprehension.

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.
