Tell your story with words, pictures, drawings, or voice recordings.
Me: A Kid’s Diary gives kids hundreds of fun, inspiring prompts to help them learn more about themselves and the people around them.
In drawings, words, animations, recordings, and photos, kids can document their worlds: their families, friends, pets, feelings, likes, dislikes, wishes, and dreams. As they play and create, kids build self-awareness, self-confidence, empathy, and kindness.

Ratings and Reviews
Good, but not the best.
I really like this app but I wish you could write your own diary entries instead of only being able to answer provided prompts. Also, somethings the question/ prompts bubbles get very cluttered and glitch around. A lot of the time, I am unable to move or click on them. Other than that, the app is very fun!
Developer Response ,
Hi! We're so happy to hear that you like the app. I will share your request to write your own diary entries with the rest of the team! We'd also love to be able to fix the glitch you're experiencing. Can you email firstname.lastname@example.org with a little more info: the type of device you're using and iOS version? Thanks! 😀🙏

In the family tree feature, when I add family members, I noticed that there wasn’t an action to make pets white. Dogs that are white [or have white in them] are: Samoyeds Cavalier King Charles Spaniels Almost Any Terriers Some Chihuahuas Huskies e.t.c. Please add white and more rainbow-y colors for chameleons and animals like that. Also, add a bigger screen, because I have so much in my family tree and I can’t get to some of my family member characters that I want to put more information about. I support you and love all of your games.
Love, Ms. Reed [8 years old]
