My Take
Starfall is one of the first websites I introduce to kindergarten as it is so easy to navigate. Kids will often get the hang of starfall in one easy session. There is no need to log in and although you can purchase more access, the free stuff is all "up-front" meaning that kids don't get frustrated as they do on other sites where you can see a lot more content than you can access.
