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.

Terrible

I just read the entire book and it's awful. Promotes, at the minimum, bad grammar and selfish behavior, but even worse, a truly negative attitude about discovering new things in life . And...the kid is simply mean. Yuck.

Teaching rude behavior and bad grammar???

We bought the box set, unfortunately, after our daughter read one of the books at school. This is not just a waste of money, it actually frustrates all our efforts to teach proper grammar and inspire good behavior. The reading level is fine for a 1st grader with good reading skills but these books certainly won't help to improve those. My daughter liked the humor. Some children may realize this is written in a particular style and that there are grammatical errors in the text as part of this but I would not bank on it.
