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.

Great early chapter book

You and your kids are likely to be familiar with the movie so read the book too. The movie is VERY faithful to the original so even young kids'll be able to follow along even tho the vocabulary may be over their heads. If you're good at voices and accents, you'll love this book - lots of opportunity to stretch your talent.
